Albamar

End of the year and an atypical whether here. Besides the constant rain, the temperature is lower than usual, considering we are entering summertime...
If by one side it is much more agreable to paint without the unbearable warmth, on the other hand, the rain provides a few breaks to open the easel outdoors.

In one of these breaks at the seashore:
This is a reminiscence of Old Rio de Janeiro, this tower is what was left from the five ones that integrated the Municipal Market. The others were demolished to give way to a new freeway in the in the 1960`s. Nowadays it is seafood restaurant that operates at the same spot since 1933.
The sea smell intensified by the damp atmosphere inspired me in this composition

Vim aqui registrar minha admiração por seu trabalho. E vendo o Albamar devo dizer que essa paisagem é muito querida, pois meu pai trabalhou no Mercado Municipal da Praça XV que, infelizmente, foi demolido sobrando apenas uma de suas torres, esta que vc retratou. Parabéns e continuados sucessos!
