La Joliette district of Marseilles


Watercolour of Marseilles, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

The La Joliette district of Marseilles, a business area right next to the old port.  Here a view up the hill to the centre of the city.  Steps for this painting 1) 'dirty' up white background building (not make it so white), 2) continue wash over rest of painting (I can see I went a bit red in the left corner there).  3) Sky with a rich cerulean and turquoise.  4) Shadows of buildings almost all done at once and car details - careful to paint around those two middle figures.
