This is the largest plein air watercolor I have done so far. It was quite an adventure.
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.
The next morning the fountain had its beautiful cascade!
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.
Finally the sky was blue like the first day and once I got everything in place, I stopped painting.
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
