Fuente del Faunito en la Rosaleda Madrid, Spain

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.

I just started this painting last weekend.  I’m still working on it.  I take photos of the process of painting to have a look at later…

The same fountain as above around five hours later.

I only paint with natural light.  On Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  I turn off all devises, disconnect for the weekend and paint all day.
