Thank you for Supporting the Arts! These house portraits were a lot of fun to make and I love to paint almond trees.

The painting above is a pen & ink with a watercolor wash and the painting below is pure watercolor.

Here a a picture of the watercolor in my hands to show a size reference and the true colors.

Have a lovely day,

Line and Wash at the Retiro Park

There was a big blue sky over the Retiro Park and long shadows on the ground. It is really hard to see the beautiful Nymph fountain because the usual glittering water spilling off the dishes is just not happening.

A pair of line and wash of the Nymph Fountain

I made two line and wash paintings. They are a lot of fun to do and the time goes by so quickly.

It’s nice to have two.

I like to take a photo of the watercolor with the model.

I can’t wait until the fountains are turned on again. At least there is water in the pond, so that is nice.
