Warms and cools and some angular shadows.  Open air restaurant on the left side and sneaked in a waiter!  And a cyclist in the shade...

Approach to Faro Railway Station

Approach to Faro Railway Station

Faro Railway Station, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The late afternoon sun across the road leading to the station building in Faro.  In front, a small cafe under the shade of some lime trees.  Behind us is the railway station building, casting shadows across the approach.

St Emilion, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

This is the bottom of the town as I call it.  On the right is a pizza restaurant bedecked in yellow and yellow parasols.  A contra jour shot looking down to the end of the town.

Corner Cafes, Vilamoura Marina

Vilamoura, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A sharp right-angle corner in the marina and a few canopies over cafes and restaurants along the waters edge.   I thought it made an interesting pattern looking across the tops of the parasols.  Palm trees simply painted with a small round brush and some dry brush marks, flicked to emulate palm fronds.

Corner Cafe Corralejo Fuerteventura Spain

Correlajo, Fuerteventura, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A corner cafe scene dominated by a large date palm tree above.  I suggested the spreading fronds with a bit of liberal splattering in a radial pattern.  Quite a simple background with the kiosk and car painted around by a fairly light value.

Fivizzano Shadows, #2

Fivizzano, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Another painting of Fivizzano.  It's after midday, the weekly market has ended, and the streets are a little quieter.  Great location for loads of plein air painting and fabulous views down every street.  I went quite loose with this one and made a play of the warm tones of the buildings on the other side of the street.
