A Watercolor of the Fallen Angel Fountain in the autumn. The watercolor is on an easel and the fountain is in the background

Fuente del Àngel Caìdo November 2019

This autumn watercolor painting is of the Fallen Angel Fountain in the Retiro Park located in Madrid, Spain.   In this September painting the  flowers that surround the fountain are bright red geraniums.

I no longer have this September watercolor with the red geraniums so I went back to the Retiro last weekend to paint it again.   To my surprise the flowers had been pulled up and replaced with red, yellow, white and purple pansies…quite a change from the bold red color.

This watercolor is from a collection of watercolors of the fountains in the Retiro Park.  The Fallen Angel Fountain is pretty interesting when you look into its history.  It’s one of a kind.

If you come to Madrid, don’t miss out on seeing this impressive fountain.

This is the Fallen Angel Fountain.  If you’ve ever read John Milton’s epic ‘Paradise Lost’  The first page comes to life when you see this awesome statue.

I’ve painted parts of this fountain a few times, but this is the first time I painted the whole fountain.

Poppies and Daisies in Pickle Jar 2019

In the spring I like to paint the wild flowers since they are so colorful and my favorite painting theme.

A picture of a watercolor in process. You can see a light grid, pencil drawing and red watercolor paint of poppies.

I started off with a grid and a light drawing, then I started putting in the poppies.

Since I’m painting from life, I put in the poppies first before they wilt.

A watercolor of red poppies, daisies and a glass jar in the process of making.

The next step I take is painting all over the paper since all the shapes and colors influence each other.

Then I start putting in other flowers, not forgetting about the equally important background which includes the glass pickle jar.

A picture of a watercolor almost finished. You can see red poppies, white daisies with a touch of purple or violet flowers in a glass pickle jar.

Here I am almost finished. Just putting in the finishing touches. Not too many.

The watercolor is almost finished here.  I paint what I see and leave a lot of the white of the paper.

This year the wild flower season was brief.  Less rain, less flowers…
