Today was a sunny day with some big clouds and a bit chilly. I really enjoy painting the monuments in Madrid.
The history behind them is really interesting.
The bronze statue represents Eloy Gonzolo and it was created by Aniceto Marinas. It was placed here in the Rastro in 1902.
While I was painting there was a couple having breakfast at an outdoor terrace. This is a typical scene here in Madrid, so I just had to include it in the painting.
I love painting couples.
The gaslamps are all over Madrid and remind me of a long ago time when they lit the streets with a warm light at night.
I like to take a photo of my watercolors outside to show the true colors. My hand also serves as a size reference. I have a little clip of the watercolor on site. Click here to see it. If you would like more information about this watercolor you can contact me here.
Thank you for reading about my little art adventure, Victoria
