Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I did this painting last year, but just can't recollect where it is.  Maybe Spain, but I can't be sure.  Anyway, a classic bit of deep values and coll colours in the shade.  I'll remember later where it was!

Tortosa Cathedral - Spain, Watercolour 15" x 11"

I was going for a range of values in this one - the dark foreground shadows and then lighter background, plus some warms and cools with the burnt sienna and blues of the sky (mainly cobalt blue) and figures. Using a wet in wet technique, I got the soft edge between the sky and the buildings - so the sky wash was painted first and then a thicker wash for the buildings.

Livorno, Italy, 15" x 11"

Via Arsenale, from the port to the town.  A busy road with lots of port traffic.  I ended up with bands of cool and warm - cool sky, warm buildings then cool foreground and shadows.  Not sure what was happening in the bottom right corner - I dabbed my fingertip in the still wet paint, ended up with a circle, so I started making abstract shapes in there.

Livorno, Italy, 15" x 11"

When I don't know exactly where I painted this, I call the painting 'street corner...'.  I try to avoid have a large object, as part of a car on the immediate edge of a painting, so the bottom left, it's still in there but made into an abstract shape, to make it 'anything'.  Another of my 3-colour palette paintings.

La Gomera, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A row of hilltop houses in San Sebastien, La Gomera.  So the scene attracted me for - the brightly coloured houses on the ridge of the hill overlooking the town, and the barren scrubland below, with a lovely mix of greens and reds.  Then, every now and then, some dark shadows giving some deeper values.

Quarteira, Portugal, 15" x 11".

A working port near the coastal town of Quarteira on the Algarve, Portugal.  A large red boat being serviced (if that's the right word) caught my eye in this one.  Quite a challenge with this scene with lots of details in the foreground to be simplified, and then the complex skyline in the background.

Livorno. Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The New Venice Area of Livorno.  The canal here, if that's the correct word, takes a sharp right-angled bend to the left after the bridge. A lovely scene, with small craft lined up along the canal sides and the sun coming in from a perfect angle across the buildings.

Riomaggiore, Italy, 15" x 11"

Another painting of this village on the Cinque Terre, and those iconic striped tarps covering the boats.  So I went for the value change here between the light of the parasols and the dark shadows left.  There's a little platform under the parasols with some outdoor seating for the cafe.  So just an impression of some people sitting in the shade.

Bath, UK, 15" x 11"

A view up/down Grand Parade in Bath, from Pulteney Bridge (the Bridge is to the left of this scene).  Most of the time, a busy street corner with mainly visitors to the city, so I had to put quite a few in.  With a group of figures, I try to treat them as one shape - so draw the tops of heads and shoulders first, then the shape of multiple bodies and sizes intermingled.
