Praça do Comércio, Lisbon, Portugal

This is my submission for this month's Virtual Paintout. Praça do Comércio, Lisbon, Portugal. I saw these colorful seats with trees growing in them and thought this might be fun. Well there is a plethora of blue! Water, sky, oh my! In addition, I guess I have never really tried to do clouds before. Well I did learn a lot, not that happy with the outcome, but there you have it!


  1. I love this. Your composition moves the eye while your blues both pull in and calm. Well done! Clouds are really tough, but you certainly managed them well. Have you been to the Beanie Bachus Museum? It's not terribly far from you. He was famous for his depiction of FL clouds.

  2. Phillis, thanks for the good words and I have not been to Beanie Backus in Ft Pierce. I will have to make a weekend forey up there.
