Canary Island - Spain

This was for April 2010 Virtual Paintout challenge. The city in April was Canary Island. I searched all over and there were many possibilities. My husband liked this picture with strong lines, so I gave it a tried.

There was a very strong perspective element in this, so I spent a bit of time sketching, with all the perspective lines, the center being in the ocean next to the red building. When I was painting the palm trees, it felt like I was painting bamboo leaves in Chinese brushing painting! I thought the tree shadows were interesting. Oxana commented that this painting was lacking in theme. Probably, but it was definitely a good study in perspective.
