First sketch in my new sketchbook for 2012. I managed to neatly finish my last sketchbook right at the end of December. ^.^ This would have been finished earlier, therefore, but I was quite busy, and on top of that I've been in bed with a very nasty migraine for the last two days. I am not impressed! Hopefully I'll be getting plenty done this week!
The starting point for this was a photograph my friend's father took of Rastoke in Croatia. It doesn't look like Rastoke any more, although the central buildings and the large bridge are quite heavily influenced by the photograph. After that I just added lots of buildings over the course of a few days. I was fascinated by the concept of a village built pretty much on top of a waterfall.
