We are in the main town called Saint Martin on this picturesque island in France. The hollyhocks grow in the streets and are in full bloom and look gorgeous against the white washed houses and terracotta roofs. 
I painted the shape of the shadows first, then putting the lights in I adjusted the tonal values and making them cool or warm.
Really enjoying painting here, it’s like a painters haven!
I have posted the stages of this painting on Instagram if you wanted to have look.
