Vilamoura, Portugal, 15" x 11".
A corner in the Marina in Vilamoura with steps leading up into the town. The marina is all new build I guess in the last 30 years or so, but they still have the Portuguese feel about them with the terracotta roofs and the warm tones of the walls. I think the perspective of the lines all leading you into the rising steps helps the composition. Also, the painting was done mostly with a size 18 mop brush with a good point (apart from smaller details on the figures which were done with a small synthetic brush).
