Marina da Gloria

Rio de Janeiro is getting ready for the Olympics. Marina da Gloria was completely remodelled for the Nautical games, its amazing, the view is a post card for itself.

 The bike easel  sometimes takes me to places that are sometimes impossible to reach by car.Why not join two pleasures and work?

Afternoon tea - watercolor

I´ve been painting more with watercolor these days. I enjoyed playing with the subtle values creating a light atmosphere.

Painting reminiscences -work in progress... time travel

During the Olympic Games there will be an exhibition in Rio about the city on the nineteenth and early twentieth century. I was one of the artists invited to tell this visual story. Plein air painting is a good way to travel through time, besides finding old buildings, survivals of a bygone era, being on the site provided me the opportunity to listen to the stories of passersby.I will post t the finished painting later.

Thanks to two passersby who spontaneously took these pictures and sent them to me.
