Landscape Watercolour of Jerusalem, 15" x 11"
The wide Sultan Suleiman road leading west towards the Damascus Gate of the old city. Steps in this painting were, 1) wash of sky and foreground, then left to dry. 2) Castle shadows and background buildings, cutting around figure and cars. Lastly 3) figures and shadows. With the figures, I normally paint in the faces first, then any bare arms and legs. Shadows for me would be the last stage. I think maybe those 2 palms on the right could have been a touch lighter in tone.
