From Dona Marta Belvedere we have an amazing view of the city, but that day the appeal of this blooming Ipe was stronger , its copious flowers formed a perfect frame for Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer. I had to paint it!

Ilhabela - Alvaro Castagnet Workshop
I love watercolor, it is fascinating dealing with water, I enjoy the possibity of "accidents",trying to take advantage of this seemingly untamed medium and colors melting on paper.
It was a great workshop experience with Alvaro Castagnet in Ilhabela.
This was one of the paintings I did there, the idea was simplify, simplify, simplify...

The workshop was very intense and joined a group of talented painters in a paradisiac island. Besides being a great artist, Alvaro Castagnet is a generous instructor. The coordination by Carmem Abranches and Gonzalo Carcamo was flawless from the reception in the island till the end, when we were treated by a Happy Hour under a full moon light!Also, I made a facebook page where you can read more about my workshop experience.
