View from El Viejo Bar in Varadero Bay

The view from the El Viejo Bar of the pedal boats and the sailboats. Drawn on Tuesday June 12, 2012. I am really trying to apply what I learnt in Shari’s workshop in Montreal this June. One of the principles is to keep the highlights “not” painted in, and keep them white.

La vue du bar El Viejo. J’essaie d’appliquer ce que j’ai appris dans l’atelier de Shari il y a 2 semaines… tenter de garder des parties blanches, sans peinture pour maximiser l’effet des lumières. Ouf! Je ne sais pas si ça fonctionne, mais j’essaie ;-)

    Was painted in Varadero Beach, Cuba ;-) It must have been 40 degrees celsius.
