Open Air Painting of The Lds Temple in June 2017 Madrid, Spain

 

This is the largest plein air watercolor I have done so far.   It was quite an adventure.

First Day

The fountain was dry when I got there.  I asked the gardener if it would have water soon.

The gardener told me that they were cleaning  it but that he would turn it on the following morning so I could paint it with water.

Fuente del Jardin de las Novias

  The next morning the fountain had its beautiful cascade!

In process

There was a heat wave in Madrid and the sky turned a dark, almost purple color that I didn’t want to paint.  I was waiting for the sky to turn light blue again.

Just finished

 

Finally the sky was blue like the first day and once I got everything in place, I stopped painting.

 

My friends with Painting 2017

Painting the Lds Temple was a really nice experience. I made two new friends A and J.  They told me a lot of interesting things about the Temple and gave me a beautiful book related to the Temple.

There’s nothing like painting in Madrid
