Fabriano Sunlight
Bristol Savages Sketch Night - High and Mighty

Zona Velha, Madeira

Zona velha madeira

Funchal, Madeira, 15" x 11"

A bustling area featuring historic homes, some with painted doors, plus lots of restaurants & bars where you can sit outside and do people watching or painting of course.  Here I have gone fro strong sunlight and lots of angular shadows - almost quite abstract for me.  Had to include a couple of figures for scale, emerging from the foreground, and added the one way sign helping with the composition pointing into the middle.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, cold press paper, 300 gms.
