Painting Inspiration

This original coffee watercolor painting was inspired by a delicious afternoon coffee in Seville, Spain, in the barrio of Heliópolis! Heliópolis is a neighborhood on the outskirts of Sevilla, where I lived as a college student for a semester in 2004, close to the Real Betis soccer stadium.

The coffee mug says “El Café de Andalucía”.

Torre del Oro Painting

The Torre del Oro in Seville, Spain, is a remnant of the Moorish history that is intertwined into southern Spain. Built in the year 1220 with lime and straw mortar, along the the Guadalquivir River, it served to protect Seville from attacks. After Fernando III of Castile conquered the city in 1248, the tower was abandoned for a long time. In 1755, the Lisbon earthquake caused serious damage to the structure and plans were made to take it down a few years later, but it was saved due to inhabitants of the city protesting against its removal. Again it faced demolition during the Spanish Revolution of 1868, but was saved another time by city inhabitants. Today it serves as a nautical museum.

Aside from it’s 800 year history, it’s a beautifully impressive landmark that glimmers along the river, and is an excellent meeting place to enjoy a bocadillo sitting along the steps that lead down to the Guadalquivir!

Prints of this oil paintings are available for purchase here.

Painting from La Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla

Earlier this summer, I received a nice compliment on a bullfight painting that I did about 6 years ago:

Spanish Bullfight. Acrylic on Canvas.

This painting was done from a photo that my wife took at a bullfight in Seville, Spain, in 2004, at the famous Plaza de la Maestranza de Caballería. The person who commented was very interested in the painting, as she is from Peru but has ancestry from Seville, and she asked if I had sold it. So I let her know that someone did buy it, but I could make another one for her. So I made a similar one, on a much larger canvas:

And here it is hanging in her and her husband’s home in North Carolina. Looks great!

Oranges on a Sunny Street in Sevilla, Spain – Watercolor Painting

Sevilla Oranges Watercolor

As I’ve written about before, the oranges on the streets in Sevilla, Spain, are one of the magical things I love about the city. Ever since the first time I went there almost 11 years ago, in February 2004, I always think of the scent of oranges by the time February rolls around here in the United States. Every time I eat an orange, the smell reminds me of Sevilla. It’s just a beautiful thing to have fruit trees planted all over a city!

This watercolor painting is of a sunny street full of oranges in Sevilla:

Spanish Flamenco Dress Art – Charcoal Drawing

Spanish Flamenco Dress Art

When my wife and I were on vacation in Sevilla, Spain, a few weeks ago, we saw several boutique shops full of colorful flamenco dresses. I imagine they all do a great business during the time leading up to La Feria de Abril (April Fair)! La Feria de Abril is a huge annual event held in Sevilla, known for its music, dancing, food, men dressed in suits and women dressed in flamenco dresses.

Here is a charcoal and red ink drawing of a Spanish Flamenco dress that I recently created. Art Prints are available here.

A crown jewel of Andalucía – Seville, Spain, also known as Sevilla in Spanish.

The Guadalquivir River runs through the city, with the San Telmo Bridge crossing over the river and connecting the long avenue of Paseo de Las Delicias, where the famous Torre de Oro (Gold Tower – built in the early 13th century) stands near the city center, with the large Plaza de Cuba.
