#219 'Palms, Villa Joyosa' 9x11"
This was a tough painting! I started in the shade of the palms but as the sun rose I was exposed! Very hot and bright even my phone over heated and temporarily wouldn't work!
The composition was tricky as there were a lot of palms all in lines, I moved my body to try and make it work. But it was still very dominated with trees. I liked the sparkle on the sea and strip of beach activity.
Back at the house I scrubbed out two palms with some trepidation not knowing if it would leave a ghost behind but thankfully it looks better and with no ghost!
I spent most of the day on this painting, I am pleased with the end result, some paintings are out of your comfort and a learning piece this was!
Last paintnig of Spain, back to sunny Surrey....
