Cala de Mijas, Spain, 15" x 11"

Maybe a midday scene this one and off season, so quite streets and just a solitary figure out in the sun.  I normally like to have figures going into or out of the shadows rather than having then in isolation and also rarely paint with the sun behind me as in this one.  So I decided to go in heavy with the shade on the left to balance the brightness on the right.  A bit of wet on wet with the soft edges on the buildings on the right and the skyline.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms
