Mijas Tourist Shops, Spain


Mijas, Spain, 15" x 11".

A row of tourist shops in deep shade in the old town of Mijas.  These shops will all their products out in view under the canopies would have been a real challenge to paint in any detail.  I just put in a dark was, then while still damp, went in with even darker tones and a few dabs of bright red.  The white buildings are not actually 'white' but inherit colours from their surroundings and I kept them fairly warm with some yellow ochre and light red.
