September 5..........Jardin El Rincon

Oil on canvas 9.5 x 7in
It is 41 degrees Celsius today (105.8 F!!!!).  I woke up early to catch the morning light entering this part of the garden and to avoid the heat later on.  In hindsight I wish I had kept it simpler, maybe focusing merely on the fountain.


  1. This one reminds me of the jungle book. I love the different color tones of the plants. It feels very lush. What is happening with the red below the fountain?

  2. Thanks, Miguel. The red below the fountain was an attempt to capture the light and shadows of the reddish-colored walkway, but it needs to be a more subtle. It is a lovely part of the garden that I will paint again with your comment in mind.
