Malaga, Spain, 15" x 11"

While waiting at the bus stop in central Malaga, I did a quick sketch which then later became the basis for this painting.  Still really a sketch and a simple study of the edge of a building, cars and people emerging from the shadows.  A key part of this painting are the washes - the graded wash on the sky (slightly stronger away from the sun) and the foreground street inheriting the colour of the buildings above.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms
