St Tropez Harbour Boats 4


St Tropez, France, 22" x 15".

 A corner of the harbour where the sea wall joins a row of restaurants/cafes.  The row of boats here I painted in a very loose style but emphasized the bow shapes with the contrast of the dark wall against the lighter hulls.  In a similar way the figures were created with the darks of the shadows and a bit of 'negative' painting around their random shapes.  I think the darker cool sky worked well against the warm buildings (plenty of alizarin crimson, cadmium orange and yellow ochre in there!).

Painted on my normal Saunders Waterford Rough, 300 gms weight.
