Narrow streets - central Bordeaux, France

Narrow street central bordeaux

Bordeaux, France, 11" x 15"

Portrait orientation for a change (not usual for me) as the scene needs it.  Being a narrow street and framed either side by high buildings.  This is another of my '3 colour' paintings/sketches using my limited palette.  I gave myself a limit of one hour for this one.  That does help you focus on timings and not going for too much detail as in the ornate facades of the buildings.  I think if I did this again, it needs more figures in there and maybe a light figure contrasting with the darker shadows.
