Vancouver from Afar

10 x 14 in  -  25 x 36 cm     Watercolor     Sometimes things really do not come off that well and this is one of the those times. My attempt at the shadow has not caught what is interesting in the ref.

This is the ref. It is very highly cropped from the supplied original.
The ref is interesting, I think, because of its softness. In the painting I chose to leave out that softness. I suppose did this because 'I know' buildings are sharp. Not the best of decisions. It is always better to think before you paint, not after.
