The Orange Courtyard Lisbon

Lisboa Rosa Patreon

Painting based on a courtyard in Lisbon.  I will call it the Orange Courtyard because of the oranges growing.  This painting is based on an image shared by a patron of mine on my Patreon site where we I have an image sharing section for painting inspiration.  So thanks Rosa for this one.

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.

Faro Backstreet 920

Faro Backstreet 920

How to make a bright scene and the light almost coming from almost behind you have some values in it?  Answer, imagine the sun has moved a little and introduce shadows from a different direction.  So here, a little more to the right and I can have some shadows coming across the street.  I kept some soft edges for the rooftops to the sky.

 


Slipway and Boatyard, Olhao, Portugal

Olhao, Portugal. Watercolour, 15" x 11"

At one end of Olhao is this lovely boatyard and slipway.  The building at the back has the 'fisherman's' restaurant in it - not sure if it's still open...  Nice and peaceful spot to paint.

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.

Fishing Boats return, Quartiera, Portugal

Fishing boats return quartiera T

Quartiera, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Fishing boats returning to port.  A little bit of a made up scene and some imagination on the right hand side with all of the moored up fishing boats.  Went with a bit of a dramatic sky with a sort of zig-zag use of a large mop brush rather than a tidy graded wash.
