Spice Market, Istanbul

This is a view of the Spice Market and a nearby Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey.  The weather was cold and rainy, so I painted indoors from my laptop.  My wife Kathey is in the black coat walking towards us.  Pen and watercolor in my small notebok.

I went to Istanbul in 2005...I loved it, one of the best destination ever for me. People were so friendly in the streets as I was sketching, they were offering me tea.
You seem to travel a lot, great for sketching :)

Yes, I hope I am able to go to Istanbul again. Wonderful people, great food and a beautiful city with so much history!

Thank you, Aristatolis, Alina and Stephane.
