Golden Horn

These are based on a slide I took about 35 years ago during a boat ride along the Golden Horn (Haliç as we call it).It was full of fascinating sights of shipyards, every imaginable type of old and new boats and ships etc.

The first one was done a few years back,you can see the difference in the styles which is in fact intentional.
Both are done on full sheet papers second one on Hahnemuehle Britannia,first one on back side of Guarro.
I entered the second one into the SAA yearly contest 2008 thinking it turned out pretty well as a sea scene but it didn't bring anything,judges apparently disagreed with me.

Hi Nusret and well done on your blog.
This is incredible... the difference in the two. Although I really like the first one, the second has a lovely mood with flowing washes that appeal to me. Your reflections are great.... keep them coming.
