Monastiraki Athens
Lymington, Hampshire

Road towards the Citadel, Alexandria


Landscape Watercolour of Alexandria, 15" x 11"

An anonymous building in Alexandria shortly before the citadel, and a liberal use of yellow ochre and deep shadows.  Stages for this painting were 1) sky wash, leading to 2) mid and foreground wash with a little cobalt blue towards the bottom.  3) After drying I start with the side gate and the shadows of the buildings.  4) Last are the figures painted in while the shadows were still wet.
