Altea

_hugo 10 14003_altea-campomanes_r25ps  ago_14_003_campomanes_dOne more try to define the composition using manly watercolor, only supported by a basic pencil geometry. That is totally different from what I used to do, painting forms after their (almost total) geometric definition. Hope you like it!

Off course it was a reaaly valencian paella, with rabbit and chicken meat, and the right “bomba” rice!

Me escapé de la multitud que se pasea por de la calle principal de la ciudad vieja para hacer este boceto en una hora; justo antes de comer una fantástica pizza en una encantadora terraza y muy bien acompañado! ¿Qué más se puede pedir en un final de tarde de verano?

Family house at Altea: I've drawn this composition a couple of times. It won't be the last, for sure: I'm not happy with the tonal values and the lack of contrast. The next time, I will try to do it with brighter colors ... Casa de mi familia en Altea, proyectada en los años 50 por el abuelo de mi mujer: Dibujé esta vista ya bastente veces. No será la última, seguro. No me quedé contento com los tonos y la flata de contraste. La próxima vez intentaré pintarlo com colores más brillantes...
