The boats on Sydney Harbour, soft pastel

This drawing took me a few nights to do. I actually feel quite anxious splitting up drawing time over multiple nights, because when I leave a work unfinished, I get a feeling of trepidation… “Will it work?”
The original scene was taken from a lookout here in Sydney, on a fabulous day, with my son’s hand in mine. We tried to count the boats but there were too many. 🙂 I took out quite a few for this drawing, because, well, art is mimicry and pictures have their own logic.
