Rua dos Clerigos

Rua dos Clerigos in Porto, Portugal.

Rua dos Clerigos is dominated by the huge and impressive cathedral, Clerigos, sitting atop the hill at the end of the street.

I painted this street scene as a line and wash, in just 3 colours:
Indian Yellow.
Ultramarine Blue (well, tbh, I started with Prussian Blue, but switched quickly to Ultramarine at the beginning of the painting).
Cadmium Red.

I was trying to get a more unified palate set, and play with colour contrasts.
