Back to Paraty, this time the weather alternated from sunny to cloudy/rainy leaving the atmosphere with a silvery and wet beauty.

This morning at Marina do Engenho - Amyr Klink  it was a rainy morning and the challenge was finding shelter from where I could work on an interesting composition.

Let it Rain! - Happy Easter!

Plein air painting on  rainy days is a real challenge, but it is a rewarding experience! There is no substitute for the feeling of being there...

The special light and wet atmosphere sets the tone of the painting.

There is a strong sense of urgency, specially when you don´t have shelter anywhere nearby.

Koi Nishikigoi Pond

Watching  a school of fish  gliding through the water is soothing. They are a silent and relaxing song. 
I had the happy surprise to stumble upon these little colourful jewels and I simply had to paint them!

Beautiful Urca!

This neighborhood in Rio is one of my favorite spots to paint. Strolling through its charming streets lined by leafy trees one feels like travelling through time...

Flamboyants and Urca - High Summer

High Summer, Rio de Janeiro is an explosion in color with its Flamboyants in bloom. The architecture bathed by the bright summer light is framed by the golden and red flowers.
