Granada's old town

Granada's old town, watercolor 56 x 33 cm
Scenes like this one, with clusters of houses, have always seemed too complex and intimidating to me. I wanted to challenge myself to try and simplify the view. I was a bit too shy with the values, so the whole painting came out too pale, but it is a step in the right direction....

Night in Seville


Night in Seville, watercolor 54 x 42 cm
Night in Seville, watercolor 30 x 25 cm
Two versions of the same night scene. The top one, which was the second one, I painted after watching one of Castagnet's videos I have. This really helps me loosen up my style and to paint faster. Well, not as loose or as fast as the master, and by no means as good :)

Flamenco dancers

Flamenco dancers, watercolor sketch
One more memory from Andalucia, and another quick sketch. I'm not thrilled with the composition, but I like how the female dancer turned out. The deep and sad flamenco singing really caught my imagination. No way to paint a song unfortunately :)
