Still haven't found the ideal place for taking the photograph but it's already a bit better than before. The problem is, that the sunlight beaming through the windows is so strong that, no matter where I set up the painting, it reflects very much. So I tried out closing the curtains, but then it was too dark. Puh! The best place so far has been the hallway, which means setting up the painting and the camera on quite a slim drawer, at an angle, with the camera right on the edge, hoping it won't fall down. Well, I'll go on searching....

On our way here, we stopped over in Barcelona for a few days, where I enjoyed the view over the city, gleaming in fantastic sunrises every morning. Might paint more of those.

Hi Liza
This is a fabulous painting!!! At first I thought it was much, much larger than it actually is.

Hi Marcia,
Thank you! I am planning to do big paintings besides the small dailies while I am here in Spain. but probably of the sea.
Hope you are doing fine,
