Olhao, Algarve 4
Meadow Street Weston Super Mare

Albufeira Old Town 6


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.
