I can see why Katherine asked for more. It is a lovely panorama and look forward to viewing more drawings by you.

This is really lovely. I especially like the way you've framed it with the foreground.

Julie, this is fantastic. i love the colour and wash, but mostly I love the way you have 'signposted' the places in the distance. Great.

Love the panorama, Julie. It's beautiful. (It once again reinforces my disdain for the perforations in the Moleskine watercolor, but that's another subject. You did a great job.)

These remind me a bit of the famous Alfred Wainwright's panoramic sketches. Great stuff Julie - and thanks.

Thanks Susan
Hashi, this really was a scene that was 'framed' on both sides which attracted me immediately
Andrea - as a graphic designer in real life I have great faith in the power of text to improve the look of an illustration.
Karen I absolutely agree with you about those ruddy perforations
Katherine, very flattering comparison, but yes I thought the same thing as I was doing it.

These are lovely - I love the way the furrows lead the eye back as well as explaining the foreground without filling it up.
