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.
