Spanish Courtyard

I wanted to share a painting I recently finished. It is a little different for me. For one thing it is 9X12 and the other is it is on stretched canvas. I have been working a lot on watercolor paper and found that canvas has a nice feel to it.

This work is from a reference photo taken in Spain. The Spanish people take great pride in their courtyards. This one was particularly lovely and we came upon it on a bright sunny day. My husband and I travelled to Spain with a group of high school students from a local school. We were part tourist and part chaperone.

I must go clean the bathrooms and do some painting. I promised my husband a painting of a rabbit for Christmas. Don't know why - he just wants one.

Peace, Lynne
