California Wild Flowers 2014
The last time I was in California, I got a sack of wild flower seeds and planted them on my terrace. It took a couple of months and these dainty little yellow, blue, pink, violet and white flowers all started blooming at once. I like to paint them.
I love plein air painting because it’s like keeping a memory on paper. I was at my cousin’s place and had an amazing time.
Both of these views are from my Cousin’s Place.
We also went to El Chorro in Malaga.
I had been to El Chorro before, but this time I came prepared to paint it. It was a bit cloudy and was raining here and there. It was a fantastic Family reunion.
La Fuente del Fauno is the name of this classic style fountain of mythological motif. I focused on the base of the fountain so I could paint the roses with the dolphins. I’ve read that the origin of the fountain is unknown. Below is the painting process or sessions.
Each session is more or less three to four hours.
