Charco de sans gines 2

Lanzarote, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The tidal 'lake' in Arrecife on the island of Lanzarote.  I have painted this lake a few times and the big challenge is the background.  Some off-white buildings, but with an overcast sky, they are the same value as the sky.  So my solution is to be very gentle with the details in the background, get in some cream colours of the buildings and take a bit into the sky.  Then I paint in a few details on the buildings, but nothing too dark.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
