Place Saint Eugenie, Biarritz and light against dark


Biarritz, France, 22" x 15".

The Place Sainte Eugenie near the seafront in Biarritz.  A row of shops on the left, a Hotel in the background in a darker light and then some cars I placed in front of that to have a bit of contrast.  That is a key element I look for when planning a painting is what area can be dark and what area can be light and also nice to have those two elements together to emphasise the tones.  So here it is a couple of cars, but it could equally have been a few figures with their shoulders and heads with some highlights against a dark background.
