St Tropez, France, 15" x 11"
There's some lovely warm buildings surrounding the harbour. Up this busy end, street artists are selling their paintings under the shade of the parasols. The roof tops were allowed to bleed into the cerulean sky to give a hazy effect. Then when the roofs were dry I did the chimneys and shadows. Reflections and waves were done with a mop brush with a fairly good point. The points on my mop brushes don't seem to last long with me - they're great when you first get them, but why do the middle hairs disappear so quickly after a few paintings?
