My idea with this was to play around with really dark foregrounds and light backgrounds. I thought I would use sepia for the foreground but ended up picking navy blue at the last minute. Although the streets were dry at the time I took the picture that inspired this painting, the blue gives the streets a wet feeling.
I limited myself to three colors on this (navy blue, yellow, and mango) and used Derwent Inktense watercolors.
The paper used is Winsor & Newton Cold Pressed Fine Grain A4 paper.
Here is the photo that inspired the painting:
