A Vision of Spain.
Oil on MDF 20 x 20in. Continuing the Spanish theme that I’ve been working on, using reference material from my recent trip. In the main, I’ve concentrated on subjects that reflect the architecture of the region, as opposed to the landscape, and loving those vibrant and warm earth colours that I always find so inspiring on Spanish buildings. As always, minimal detail with the emphasis on unlaboured spontaneity, impressionistic even – my vision of the scene, and not intended as an accurate architectural representation. I’ve been taking stage photographs along the way, and the WIP feature will be in the November e-newsletter. Some way off of course, but I hope it may be of interest to a few of you. My recent WIP was a similar subject but painted at the scene, a totally different scenario and experience to painting this one in the studio. I’ll let you decide which was the most enjoyable!
