Avenue Ithier Gorin, St Foy la Grande, France

Avenue Ithier Gorin st foy la grande

St Foy la Grande, France, 15" x 11"

A busy road junction in the South West town of St Foy la Grande.  What I think worked well was the yellow car and putting in that base yellow colour on the first wash which spread over the surrounding area.  I then repeated with a splash of yellow over on the left in the building shadows (I think there was some yellow over there!).  It's always a bit tricky to know what to do on the left - on a very bright side of the street - so leave very understated and get in some detail....
