Love this one, Seok - full of light and atmosphere.

Superb watercolour capturing of this Cathedral amply displaying your customary attention to detail Seok, lovely light and shade, just enough people walking around the square and at the cafe set up in the corner, lovely climbing plant on the wall as well

So well observed Seok, good light and shadow and I've noticed the figures! Well done.

How much more beautiful than a "souvenir snap-shot". You have depicted this lovely old building so well with all its complicated columns and alcoves. If all goes well I should see this for real in January! (PSMany thanks for your appreciative comment on my old letter box.)

What a pleasure to see a new posting of yours Seok - this is superbly handled

Great watercolour Seok, I especially like the tones in the Cathedral - I've seen Havana on holiday - atmospheric City!

An absolute masterpiece Seok! Delicate colours, fantastic drawing, super perspective. Everything works beautifully together and creates a harmonious ensemble. Well done!

Wow so complicated and yet you've made it look easy!

A super composition Seok! lovely colours and great rendering of the architecture.

This caught my eye immediately. You've got just enough detail to intrigue the eye without ever being pedantic. I like the muted colours too - a delicate sky rather than overwhelming cobalts! Thanks too for your appreciation of Cecil Meares Seok. I too think it's one of my better efforts (though it seems the POL fraternity didn't share my!)

Wow, what a lovely building and you've brought it to life so beautifully Seok. Stunning work.

Full of interest and great use of washes and colours. It takes more than a second look to appreciate this. Thanks re: my early years effort. It's no use thinking of what might have been .... I am enjoying myself now so that is what matters!

Seok this is beautiful, I don't know what else to say! Just beautiful.

Super work once again Seok , good feeling of light and shade.

Another beauty, just love it.

Lovely and very complete scene - the building looks amazing and the addition of the people make the whole thing come to life. So much to look at and enjoy.

Outstandingly beautiful Seok, fabulous composition. I love the little figures, great perspective.

Thanks so very much, everyone!

Fantastic. So well composed. So well balanced in colours and tones.
