Virtual Paintout April 2014: Liverpool

For this month's Virtual Paintout we got to stroll around the Beatles' hometown: Liverpool.

The greates challenge for me is always to choose a location to draw, so I usually don't take more than 10 minutes to decide.

I liked this view of a busy station and wanted to try to convey that feeling.

I wanted to do something radically different from my usual submissions, so I didn't plan anything and went straight to watercolour.

I then added some ink here and there to give a bit more definition to the drawing.

As a finishing touch, I added lyrics from a few Beatles' songs. How could I not?
