Latest YouTube Video - How to paint a harbour scene with Boats - Newquay, Cornwall
Reflections Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

Quarteira Car Park 2, Portugal


Quarteira, Portugal, 15" x 11"

I painted this scene some time ago and this is my second attempt.  I also videoed the whole thing, so I might post it up on YouTube sometime.  I think the scene makes a good study of tonal values and how to get maximum contrast in a picture with for example the reflections from a car windscreen against a dark background.  In the foreground, the random spots of paper left unpainted make good rocks with a little shadow behind them.
