A view from the Plaza a Luis de Camoes in Lisboon - watercolor painting by Caitlin Heimerl.
On this tour, I'm traveling with my niece, Caitlin Heimerl. She is a recent graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, and she is loving the opportunity to paint in all of the beautiful cities we are visiting on this tour.
After visiting the castle in Lisbon, we found the Plaza Luis de Camões and stopped to paint as the sun was setting.
In Madrid, after a morning at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, which houses Picasso's "Guernica," and a walk through the cobblestone streets of the city, we found a lovely fountain on Paseo del Prado. In spite of the cold, Caitlin pulled out her watercolors to paint there in the early evening.
