Bend in the road, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Bend in the road santa cruz de tenerefe

Tenerife, Spain, 15" x 11"

Although a narrow street with tall buildings either side, I gave prominence to the foreground shadows.  So I made a feature of the brush strokes making up those shadows, leaving a few gaps here and there, but all leading the eye into the middle of the scene.  When you're trying to get in some continuous marks like this, to put some white road markings in later is best done with a small bit of white gouache.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
