Plaza de las Comendadoras, Madrid, Plein Air

Madrid, Spain, 22" x 15".

The lovely Plaza de las Comendadoras in Madrid, a demonstration plein air painting on my recent short painting course hosted by Alda Con Limon.  This was a morning painting, not too bright, so I had to imagine the shadows some what.  There were so many painting subjects just in this square.  You could have turned 360 degrees and found something to paint at every angle.  Also I was thinking about the time of day, not only the different subjects but the angle of the sun.  The above composition might have been quite nice with a diagonal shadow across the facade of the main building.  This painting is sold.
