Trevelez street from inside the wash house

We needed a cool spot to paint and the old wash house was ideal. What you can’t see is a trough of water to my left fed by a fountain. 5 minutes after starting the painting a very large labrador turned up and plunged into the trough to cool. I had to hastily retreat until it had enough of splashing around in the trough. In real life even the interior of the wash house seemed dazzlingly white and I found I had to cheat quite a lot to achieve the effect of the sunlit street seen from inside.
