Watercolour of Barcelona, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300 gms.
The crossing over to Placa Antonio Lopez walking towards the old part of the city. I had a little bit of an experiment with the trees and trying to get the feeling of the strong light glistening over their canopies. So this time I painted the foliage in first, with an old brush in a fairly random fashion. Then I dropped in the darker background buildings down to meet the trees, but not quite touching in a few places leaving the bare paper showing. Pedestrian crossings also need a bit of rough treatment to make them a bit more realistic.
