Final Painting in Vallès

We've been back in Canada a few days, but before leaving Valencia I managed to squeeze in one last painting contest, in the tiny town of Vallès. It was the third time I'd painted there and every time it's been fun.

Some paintings on display in the main square at lunch, when the contest ended.

For lunch, a giant paella with chicken and snails.

My final piece.

And so that does it for fast painting this year. It was a short season. But I learned some new tricks, blabbed art and drank beer with artists, and sharpened my painterly instincts, the main reason why I do the contests.

Now it's on to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and Guelph Art on the Street (see my website). More on that to come.
