I’m so happy to see the sketches here! I must say that everything animate and inanimate in your sketches seems to be not only alive, but to have a delightful personality. I feel like I could sit down with your church or your orange sky or purple building and hear an amusing story from each one of them.
Thanks Danu! Yes we had a great voyage, a dream voyage even, and Portugal seems to be the ideal land for painting. I loved the landscapes, the boats, the towns, the houses, the castles, the vegetation,the rivers, the sea, the people… everything could have been a motive. In one of my travel stories I said that I should dedicate the rest of my artistic life to Portugal, and I would never get bored!
And in fact I can’t wait to go back there and sketch again!Perhaps already in October this year…
Nice and funny comment Susan! I guess if you sat down there the the skies and the churches and the rest would tell you their stories personally… and this is exactly what I loved so much in Portugal, everything seemed to have an own personality, and this is fantastic to sketch!
Bonjour Fanfan, quel plaisir de te voir ici, parmi tous “mes” anglais!
J’ai adoré le Portugal, et moi aussi j;en ai pris plein les yeux, et même plein le cœur! je suis vraiment tombée amoureuse de ce pays et il me tarde d’y revenir, pour y peindre et repeindre…
