Portugal trip - Part 2

Here is the part two of my Portugal blog. Still in Ferragudo, Mo Teeuw and I saw a lovely painting opportunity in these local men chatting in front of the fishermen's huts. It was very entertaining to hear them in great debate while we were painting.

Guess who's the lazy one sitting down?



That's 3 paintings done that day but I was hungry for a quick last one! I did this little painting of the Fort on the beach before the sun went down:

Next day was a rainy one. so we settled for some still life which I greatly enjoyed.

One of my favourite things to paint for still life: fish!

This last one below, I had to rush as the cook wanted to put it in the oven! 'One more minute and I'm done!', I kept saying every 10 minutes!
