Quai des Belges, Marseilles


Marseille, France, 15" x 11".

The 'Quai des Belges' Marseille in the Old Port area - a very busy part of the city and where the fish market is.  The first wash was light cerulean blue for the sky, yellow ochre in the middle and alizarin crimson at the bottom.  Then I painted the Hotel in the middle and the buildings in the distance on the right.  Then the left hand shaded area, people and cars were almost done in one process, dropping in darks while the paint was still damp.  Darks were done with neutral tint with ultramarine blue.  The globe street lights needed a careful bit of painting around.
