Painting local landscapes in pen & wash

Haven't posted for a while - been so busy creating.
I've been painting pen and wash watercolours of local scenes. This is Bernays Gardens near where I live in Stanmore.

In Springtime parts of London are transformed by blossom trees and, Bernays Gardens, like so many areas in London bursts out in glorious pink blossoms. Bernays is a local treasure: a small walled garden hidden amongst the shops - a little sanctuary to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Marcia's pen & wash painting of Bernays Gardens in Stanmore.Here's the final pen & wash painting just under A1 size 27" x 19.75"
Below: two stages of creation - left image shows initial broad washes to begin basic tones and colours. The second stage, shown on the right, gives more detail but no pen work as yet. 
The fine pen strokes seen above in the final painting, are done with a fine nib dipped in Indian ink, adding detail while giving delicacy to areas such as blossoms.
