A typical view of st Martin, with shuttered windows, boats and reflections. I wanted to give the impression of strong light. Although Ile de Re is not as far down as the Mediterranean it still has wonderful light and feels bright like the south of France.
Quite complex subject the windows are tricky as you want to imply them but not put in to much detail - getting the balance of just enough information. Also putting the paint on quiet thickly gives a looser feel.
