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

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

Bike and Cafe Watercolor Painting

Coffee is a daily pastime of mine, which is probably why I love to paint cafes and coffee so much. This watercolor painting shows a sunny street, a parked red bike, and a cafe beckoning you to enter, sit down, take your time, and sip on a coffee. Now that sounds like a day well spent!

The original 9″ x 12″ painting, on archival, acid-free watercolor paper, is available for purchase, as well as 8″ x 10″ archival prints. Just visit the “Buy Art” page for more information.

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.

Art Sketches from Sevilla, Spain

This last week, my wife and I took a vacation to beautiful Sevilla, Spain, for the 10 year anniversary of us meeting there. The city just lends itself to artistic inspiration. After a few days there, I wished I had brought my sketchbook and pencils! Since I didn’t bring them, I instead made do with a hotel note pad and a ball-point pen. Here are some quick ink sketches I did while in Sevilla:

Mediterranean Blues and Whites – Ibiza, Spain Painting

It’s been several weeks now that my painting activity has slowed way down. What can I say, I’ve been busy with other things! An artist also needs an artistic break every now and then to regain inspiration.

A few days ago I put brush to gessobord and came up with this small “Mediterranean Blues and Whites” painting for my wife and I to hang in our kitchen. The painting is based on a photo I took in Ibiza.

The Mediterranean region has long been an artistic inspiration for me, from the cultures and foods to the landscapes and seascapes.

 

Mediterranean Sea Spanish Painting – Nerja, Spain

If you ever travel to southern Spain and want to go to the renowned Costa del Sol beaches, may I suggest an alternative to the bustling areas around Málaga?

Nerja:

Nerja is nestled into the east end of the Costa del Sol.

Beautiful cliffs, turquoise sea, Spanish cuisine, beaches, what more could you want?

When my wife and I were there, we stayed in a very small village next to Nerja named Maro, and took day trips to the beaches of Nerja.

 

Ibiza Flowers and Architecture – Spanish Painting

Imagine yourself on a sunny day in the Mediterranean region, exploring winding narrow streets and stairways with fresh flowers in bloom!

The image from this painting is from the Old Town section of Ibiza, Spain. My wife and I visited there in 2004 and then took our honeymoon to Ibiza in 2009!
