St Foy la Grande, France, 15" x 11"

A quiet back street of this French town on the banks of the River Dordogne.  My key focus in this painting was to try and get a little bit of light on the side of the upper level dormer windows and try and get a sense of the warm stone colour and typical window shutter colour.  Cars can be quite tricky to paint when they are in part shade and light is bouncing off an opposite wall to create many complicated patterns on the car body.
