Demo painting last night to Newton Watercolor Society in Boston (it was via Zoom of course!).
About 40+ of their members painted along with me over a couple of hours. This is Fivizzano Market Day in mid October. A bit of sun and an exercise in perspective, figure drawing, and simplifying the scene.
Praça Ferreira de Almeida Faro Portugal
Went a bit loose on this one. A small square in central Faro, Portugal. Quite a simple composition - shadow, background building and one tree. Plus a few figures and cars to balance things out.

Watercolor, 15" x 11", France
Painted some time ago, and now forgotten the exact location. So another somewhere in France theme, following on from my last posting. Quite a loose one and I had fun with the dark dry brush strokes towards the end.
Borgo dei Cappuccini Livorno Italy
A street behind the port area. That shadow up the wall of the building and trying to get the feeling of bright light beyond and darker shadows in the foreground. That cyclist had better watch out - going up a no-entry street!
