heavy traffic in 1866 Square, Chania, Crete


Chania, Crete, 15" x 11".

The 1866 square in Chania, Crete, and a steady one-way flow of traffic going through this busy city.  It's also an area of transition between mainly two storey older buildings on the right running down to the sea and newer multi storey apartment blocks on the left.  Predominantly I used yellow ochre and cerulean blue for this painting.  Burnt sienna and cerulean together also makes a nice 'grey'.  From a composition point of view, having a row of cars and the light coming from one side makes it easier to connect everything.
