Watercolour of Olhao, Algarve, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300 gms

A fairly quick sketch and looser style painting of a quiet back street in Olhao on the Algarve.  There's a fair degree of contrast here between the light shining on the shop blinds and the darker shadows on the right.  Neutral tint was added to ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson to get that dark tone, and a weaker mix as I went left into the light, with some added cobalt blue.
