Watercolour of Albifeira, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300 gms.
A quiet street leading down to Albufeira Old Town. Here, I have tried to give a sense of warmth with a predominant yellow ochre wash, almost down the whole painting, and a fiery bougainvillea flowering at the entrance t the car park. When the first wash was bone dry, I then painted the building shadows with mostly cobalt blue and a touch of burnt sienna and yellow ochre again. The very dark shadows and windows were mainly neutral tint with ultramarine blue.
