However, this bridge in Ronda grabbed my attention first and so I had to have a go at it. The first job was to do a drawing.
Not too bad, but then I had to work out how on earth to tackle those cliffs! I painted them first with a loose wash, varying the colours from Raw Sienna to Raw Umber with bits of Alizarin Crimson and French Ultramarine to give some variety. After that it was just a matter of adding more layers to bring some definition into it. I don't usually work into a painting like this but with this one it was never just going to work with only one layer of paint.
I'm reasonably pleased with the result but if I was to do it again I would try not to put so much detail in the cliffs as they could be a little overdone.
Here is a photograph of the bridge from a different position
