Joseph Zbukvic painting course day 5

Day 5 and the morning exercise was a typical French/Italian market scene in a small square.  It was I guess a practice in composition again, tonal values and light.  As per normal I did not listen 100% to teacher and had slightly modified the example we should have copied.  So mine was probably more Southern Italy in atmosphere rather than France:


My next effort (again a rush job before lunch, so done in 30 minutes or so) was closer to Joseph's style with perhaps less strength in the colours, a bit more subtle and a looser feel to the shadows, background building and figures under the parasols.


In the afternoon I did a quick sketch of the bay in front of the hotel, looking over to the far side of Cadeques.
