Fast Painting in Vallés: 3rd Prize

I won third place in the annual plein air painting contest in the village of Vallés this weekend, the same I won last year. I couldn't be happier or more appreciative of the recognition. Not only is it nice to win so I can pay for materials and get out to more contests, but in the two times I've painting in Vallés the town has treated us painters well, feeding us both breakfast and lunch, giving us the chance to show our work in the main square, and letting us use the municipal pool.

Painting away. I was lucky to find probably the most shaded corner of the main square.

Signing at the end, the crucial final detail.

The finished piece. 116cm x 89cm, acrylic on canvas.
