Watercolour of Marseille, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300 gms
A sunny Saturday morning's street market in central Marseille. Quite a simple painting in a few steps. Background buildings were painted in very simply and around the parasol tops and figures. Then the figures were painted in, alternating tones to make some darker than others, and at the same time introduced the shadows, paying attention to the perspective of their lines. Lastly some highlights went in on the figure heads and shoulders with white gouache.
