Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, 15" x 11".
A sunny street corner in the city of Las Palmas. A tricky scene with a couple of motorbikes parked here. The approach was for great simplification. Looking closely at what you are painting and just look for shapes. Then paint this object in as fewer strokes as possible. In this case I touched up the wheels and front forks with a bit of white gouache for highlights. The background was also left a little out of focus and very simple and subdued.
