On a work trip to Lisbon in November 2013 I sketched a view of the harbour, from Edward VII Park. It was a cloudless day but the wind was cold and the trees were turning golden. I sat until I got too cold but felt I had captured the panorama.
Once home I made a couple of sketches from photos I took while walking the city.
This painting captures the city levels from street up to the castle, with a tram, taxi and crowded streets, with the shoppers mostly in their winter coats. Viewed from Praca Dom Pedro IV
I visited a couple of Milongas in the evening and had a wonderful time dancing.
I love the golden light you’ve captured on the first painting.
