Barcelona Walk

I guess you could call this a BIG hint as to what the next city in the Virtual Paintout is going to be. I found this view of a Barcelona street and was struck by the bright backlighting. I did a couple of thumbnail sketches and then a full size value study before painting this one.

I purposely tried to leave out as much detail as I could. Trying to push myself beyond where I feel comfortable. I have to keep learning, stretching and trying something new.

You've got the backlighting just right. Great effect of the strong mediterranean light.
