Sitges Beach and Church - A Watercolour Challenge

Sitges_beach_towards_church_2

Sitges, Spain, 22" x 15".

A commission based on a photo provided for me.  The 3 main challenges for this painting were 1) the scene with few shadows and light/dark contrasts.  The Background mountain range was darkened a little to create more of a contrast with the middle ground buildings.  2) A bit of careful painting of the sky around the two church towers (I never use masking fluid).  3)  The detail in the buildings had to be simplified to match my loose style.
