End result

I´ve finished the 4-meter painting I was working on recently...it now awaits packaging and shipping safely (I hope) in another, more spacious workshop...

This is how it looks finished:








...and some recent bread: A basic white, rustic sourdough... 


...and a wheat and rye sourdough loaf with oat flakes...


This is how the crumb of the rye loaf looked like. A bit tighter since I wanted it to be more of a sandwich loaf and not one with big airy holes.

Asturias sketches

Was up north in Asturias with the family these past couple of weeks. Did some sketches of the area we were in while there. Beautiful region, Asturias, combining mountain and sea. Only wish I was able to do more...


A view of some of the mountains around Fios, in the  area of Parres.


                                              ....and my set-up...

A valley seen from behind the town church of Fios.



Casa Cueto. A house built in the 1700s in the hamlet of Villar de la Cuesta in the area of Parres.
                                                                                                         ...and my set-up...
                      


Ruins of an old barn in Fios.
                                                                                                      ....and my set-up... 


Playa de la Atalaya in Ribadesella. In the distant horizon you can see the cliffs of Cuerres.



The medieval bridge in Cangas de Onis (without the ever-present throng of tourits).


Then there were some quick notes in my watercolor notebook...

 The main beach in Ribadesella.

Some boats anchored in the port of Cudillero.

 The beach at Lastres.

 The town church of Fios,
A fountain in the grounds of the Basilica of Covadonga.
