So with a little home sickness, I painted this painting of a woman in a red sweater, in typical clothes of the town of Aluasi. This woman reminds me a bit of my grandmother from Holland, but I have to say she only wore tres chic clothes, but she had the same kind of attitude and grace of this lady.
It was a warm market day, and we were just walking around looking at all the fresh produce and liveliness of the crowd. The music was blaring and so much activity of bartering and buying. It was great. These are some of my wonderful memories of Ecuador.
This painting was created on A4 Canson multimedia paper, home made gesso, winsor and newton water color markers, Mister Clean magic eraser,Qor watercolor for back ground (look at that amazing color!). Qor is my new play thing, I will be starting to play with that soon and see how that works out. This photo is from my personal reference of photos.
