This stage of the painting is fun because as the foreground buildings start to go in, the background begins to drop into the distance. The color of the tower villa is warmer and more intense than the buildings along the harbor, therefore it jumps forward.
The rich hue of the Bougainvillea tumbling down the rock wall adds to the depth. As I paint I like to use the largest brush possible to put in broad areas of color. Then switch to a smaller brush as needed to paint the finer detail. I paint with thick brushstrokes and lay the paint on the canvas, giving a texture much like a palette knife.
