Plein Air Watercolor Painting of Monumento a Los Héroes de Cascorro in El Rastro November 4th Madrid, Spain

Plaza de Cascorro Watercolor November 4th, 2021 Madrid, Spain

Today was a sunny day with some big clouds and a bit chilly. I really enjoy painting the monuments in Madrid.

The history behind them is really interesting.

Eloy Gonzolo, alias Cascorro November 4th 2021 Madrid, Spain

The bronze statue represents Eloy Gonzolo and it was created by Aniceto Marinas. It was placed here in the Rastro in 1902.

A couple at an outdoor terrace

While I was painting there was a couple having breakfast at an outdoor terrace. This is a typical scene here in Madrid, so I just had to include it in the painting.

A couple

I love painting couples.

Gaslamp at Plaza de Cascorro

The gaslamps are all over Madrid and remind me of a long ago time when they lit the streets with a warm light at night.

A photo in the daylight shade

I like to take a photo of my watercolors outside to show the true colors. My hand also serves as a size reference. I have a little clip of the watercolor on site. Click here to see it. If you would like more information about this watercolor you can contact me here.

Monumento a Alfonso XII, Madrid

This is a small studio painting of the artificial lake in the Retiro Park. I can’t wait to be able to walk in the Retiro Park again.
