PPF street scene

I painted this from a photo I took in Ronda, Spain while on vacation. It's really my first serious effort at capturing multiple buildings and using shadows effectively. The tree on the right definitely needs work, but I'm pleased with the way the town looks. I love the way watercolors blend and run together to make such soft color transitions!
