Oh just gorgeous. You have my respect for creating an environment like this in pastels especially. Just beautiful.

Thanks! Yes, it takes me about ten watercolors before I'm wanting to go back to pastels again - tricky stuff! :)

Beautiful and peaceful. I don't know why, but it reminds me of Japan.

Thank you! I'm a big Japanophile; I'm sure that is related to why I like city night scenes so much!

Very eye-catching, the neon glow is done superbly, did you work from a reference photo or otherwise?

Thank you! I love pastels for their vividness and the lack of color mixing. I otherwise dislike them intensely to work with. :) Yes, always from a photo reference - I'm very slow and need scenes with infinite patience.

I can relate, I mostly use photo references and am similarly slow needing a lot of patience!!
