The main road into Cadeques - not your normal subject for this picturesque Spanish seaside town


Cadeques, Spain, 15" x 11".

Not your typical view of Cadeques.  No picturesque fisherman's boat on a sandy beach with white-washed buildings and blue sea in the background.  So this is the main road coming into Cadeques.  Another one of my 'just take any scene and try and make a painting out of it' exercises.  Also another unusual thing for me is the light almost behind me - a rare thing I do as I prefer 'contre jour'.  A handy tip to hint at the different levels of the pavement and road is to have long shadows going side to side following the contours...
