Alcazar de Sevilla, watercolor alla prima
When the king and queen of Spain visit Sevilla, they stay here. Over 700 years ago, the Moors lived here, and they had built this palace with lavish gardens, water-fountains, and beautifully decorated walls, ceilings, gates and patios. It's an amazing place to visit and spend an entire day immersed in centuries old beauty. When I go to Sevilla, I love to spend at least an afternoon in the Alcazar, and paint a couple of watercolors. This one is a small sketch from 2010.
