Old brick archway in Portugal

I have put together a whole lot of reference pictures that I want to use as a base for the paintings for my exhibition in March! I am possibly going to focus on boats, old windows and doors and arches! This was a wonderful old fort we visited in Portugal. I loved the red bricks and the picture it made with a bit of the overhanging tree, the sunlit spaces and shadows! The picture is an A4 size and I have used a rough paper! It added to the picture!
