This is the Plaza del Conde de Barajas la Plaza de los Pintores. There are 39 artists who show their work every Sunday from 10-2. I have a little stand there too. As of October I have a permanent stand where I show my art too. I’m really happy about it.
Hope to see you there!
On Sunday September 9th, I’ll be at the Plaza de los Pintores. These are some of the pieces I’m going to show.
If you are in Madrid, drop by and see us at Plaza Conde de Barajas (Plaza de los Pintores). I’ll be there every Sunday in September from 10-2. Hope to see you there.
Although this Sunday, the 9th, the Art in the Street show is cancelled due to the heat wave, We’ll back back on Sunday the 19th of August.
Aunque este domingo, día 9, el espectáculo Art in the Street se canceló debido a la ola de calor, regresaremos el domingo 19 de agosto.
The Plaza de los Pintores is located in the heart of Madrid, right around the corner from el Mercado San Miguel. It’s a quiet Plaza even though it’s surrounded by busy streets.
Here at the Plaza, I painted a few street scenes like this one that leads towards las cuevas de Luis Candelas.
This is calle de la Pasa which leads to the quiet little plaza.
This is the well-known Paseo del Prado with Neptune fountain in the middle of the round-about. The Retiro Park is nearby.
This is the Cristal Palace in the Retiro Park.
The Sabatini Gardens are exquisite to contemplate.
The Almudena Cathedral is right next to the Royal Palace.
There’s a heat wave in Madrid, so…tomorrow’s show is cancelled. Hope to see you next Sunday from 10-2 the 19th of August if the weather allows.
The Crystal Palace was invented by Ricardo Velazquez Bosco, built in 1887. It has a high dome in the center which is almost 23 meters high. Since 1990 it has been an annex of the Reina Sofia Museum of Contemporary Art. It is located in the Retiro Park in Madrid, Spain.
While I was painting, lots of different tourist groups came to see this beautiful metallic building from my same view-point. I once overheard an old man talking about this being the best spot to see the Crystal Palace so I came here to paint this line and wash watercolor.There’s nothing like painting in Madrid.
