Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura. 15" x 11".

Pedestrian crossings are great things to include in a watercolour painting.  Imaging the scene without it - a fairly boring foreground and nothing leading your eye into the painting.  The lines need to be of course of centre and I normally dull down the 'white' with anything left over on my palette from a previous painting.  No pedestrian crossing is perfect - they're dirty, have missing paint and tyre marks all over them.  I made the left hand figure the focal point, leaving the top half bright to contrast heavily with the dark background.
