379 Street scene in Algiers coming out of a tunnel, watercolor


This is from a photo I’ve taken in Algiers, Algeria. It’s a tunnel that leads to the “Place Audin” in the center of the city. Watercolor is a great mystery. As is perspective. And cars too. This is lose, but is it the right kind of lose? Maybe these kind of perspectives need to be on bigger paper (and to take a little longer) I think I also need to be a little more bold with my use of color.. Everything tends to get a little brown and transparent for me and lack a little contrast. But maybe that’s just my eyes seeing.

  1. I like the impressionistic quality. It looks more like a window than a tunnel, or maybe a mirror, very like a reflection of an image. I would definitely give larger paper a try, just because it does influence how I paint anyway.
