A few views from our trip to Andalusia. I knew that we would be on the road, as in "on the go" with
lots to see so I didn't bring my easel and full palette. I decided to go with just a tube of Ivory Black,
a 4" x 10" block. The architecture was the thing so buildings appear in all of these paintings. The blending of Spanish and Moorish or Mudejar (among other influences) styles was a visual feast.
If I had a full palette I could not have captured the luminescence, the abundance of patterning and geometry. I came back inspired to finish some of my abstract tree pieces I had started in the studio before I left. Those and more about the trip on my next posts! Felix Año Nuevo to everyone!
