Now this is a rapid painting competition, in Plaza del Conde de Barajas also called Plaza de los Pintores in Madrid, Spain. I’ve always had my eye on this plaza.
I’ve been doing line and wash lately so I thought I would try it here at the fast painting competition sponsored by Taller Abierto; really nice people by the way.
After about three hours the light completely changed.
And the sun started creeping in until I had to leave.
Here in Madrid the Sun is hot, really hot. You got to be careful and always try to stay in the shade to avoid heat related mishaps. You don’t want one of those.
This is Emilio, he took all the pictures. Thanks Emilio!
The next day I went back and finished the painting as best I could.
This watercolor is going to be in Semana de Arte en la Calle street exhibition at Plaza del Conde de Barajas every Sunday of July. 10-13:00. Come visit us if you are in Madrid this summer.
