Fethiye Bay 2013

This is my favourite view of Fethiye and my original photo, taken from the hillside above the Marina Vista Hotel and the boatyards, has a picture postcard quality that I rarely capture. The plan is to create a large landscape and this is my first studio sketch using that photo which I intend to follow up with some plein air work.  I limited my pallette to just the three primaries and white and worked with a large brush to try and keep the detail minimised.  I’m really looking forward to the challenge of developing this as it’s a more picturesque subject than most of my work on Kayakoy.
