#0198 Was thinking it was time to retire the el-cheapo watercolour set … notably I haven’t had as much use out of the reds/browns. Bought it when I wasn’t sure how committed I could be to a daily sketch but think I’m comfortable upgrading now.

PS. Paint job seems a bit dull on this one.

PS. Didn’t manage to get enough texture into the road, so ended up having to paint it quickly as I was running late to get ready for work.
#0191 Guam Government House Agana Guam (1980). The back of the postcard reads “The beautiful new building on a hilltop overlooking the city of Agana and the beautiful Pacific Ocean – is the official residence and reception area for the governor of the Territory of Guam”. This was the very first stop on my very first overseas trip with my sister and maternal grandmother. I wonder whether what this building looks like 30+ years on.
