Nice compositions, deftly drawn but I'm am worried about that bull in the middle of the road in the second sketch...haha!!! I've been chased off of farm ponds when I was fishing due to a bull in the field.

You don't have to worry, Stephen. These are usually quite peaceful and even a bit shy. You can find them quietly resting ad the roadside or even in some of these village's streets, and they won't chase you, but you can chase them :))

Hi Paulo! I see I have to start saving and selling to try and buy your latest work. That curving road and fountain are to die for!

Paulo J. Mendes said...

Hi Sheila! I am so glad you came back safely from your long working journey. I will work a lot in order to have such beautiful images at any time for you to enjoy. Some more are already on the way.
I wish you a wonderful Easter, and a well-deserved rest!!

These are going to be great. I especially like all the detail you are including in the top piece.

Paulo J. Mendes said...

You can see the finished work of the top piece in my previous post, Rob. I had the greatest time painting it, and looking forward to start with some of the others.
