Barcelona, Spain, 15" x 11".
It's been a few years since I painted the 'Ramblas' in Barcelona and after stumbling across a photo of the bottom end of this wide boulevard I decided to have another go. Being a very very busy area of course there has to be many people in the scene. I tried not to overdue the numbers and included a little street cafe on the right hand side. The large tree had a very loose treatment and I dropped clear water into it as it was still moist to get those meandering lines coming down the canopy. The architectural details of the building was done with dry brush strokes using mainly neutral tint with a smallish synthetic brush.
