Some new watercolor notes

Try as I may, I still find it so hard to update this blog in a manner that is more frequent…

Here are a few studies done lately, here and there, taking up watercolor again -- as I tend to do every now and then -- my favorite medium for what I call  "nervous relaxation".

This first one is a one and a half-hour (maybe two) sketch of the statue of Goya that presides the north facing entrance to the Prado Museum here in Madrid. I remember doing this same statue a few years ago, from another angle. I enjoyed painting it then as I did now. It lends itself well to be painted...


This one is a view of the beach at Sesimbra in Portugal...


…and a side street in Toledo city...


…and finally, a couple of strollers at that beach in Sesimbra again...


Hopefully, I will be able to do more this summer, who knows…
BUT, if you want to feast your eyes on REALLY good watercolor stuff, check out this link (click here) to my Pinterest page. All of the pieces featured here are truly exquisite and clicking on them will lead you to other exquisite examples. You know how it works...
