What a challenge you took on with this painting. Nicely painted. You captured the feeling of the side street with the deep shadows.

Hi Marcia,
Yes, that area is indeed quite special. Luckily it has kept it's charm, in spite of it being very touristy, too. Thank you for your comment!

Liza Hirst said...

Gracias, Graziano!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you, Ruth. I almost felt as if I was actually there while painting it and really enjoyed working on it.

Liza, this is fabulous .

Olha Pryymak said...

those bigger pieces are fantastic. Catalan light really becomes you :)
while dreary January light here is far from inspiring.

Liza Hirst said...

Well, you're definitely making the best of it, Olha!
Thanks for your comment.
