London street nocturne study in watercolour

Nocturnes are difficult in any medium. I had a go at this one in watercolour. A London street at night with a bus approaching a bus stop. If I was to have another attempt at it, I would use Fabriano artistico/ Waterford Saunders paper and body colour. The paper here was Bockingford 200 lbs, which was ok but a little flat, and was great for lifting out colour but difficult to overlay washes without disturbing a previous wash, 11x15 ins.
