Steps, Plaza Mayor, Madrid, Spain

Steps plaza mayor madrid spain

Madrid, Spain, 15" x 11".

A study of some steps leading up into the busy Plaza Mayor square in central Madrid, Spain.  So the steps are the main feature of this painting.  I think with hindsight, I could have had them take up an even larger proportion of the scene.  And fun to do as well with the figures and steps all merging in with each other, plus some clear water allowed to drop in there to add some interesting effects which you can only do with watercolour.
