Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos

 Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos 
(Castle of Christian Monarchs)
Corodoba, Spain
poured watercolor
11x14"

While in Spain, I taught my class how to do a poured watercolor. The above image is what we did. 
It is of the  Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos in Cordoba. 
This castle is located along the river near the Mezquita and was built in 1328 by Alfonso XI. 
It is the castle where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella resided when Christopher Columbus approached them with the request to fund his journey and subsequently the discovery of America.

I wrote a quick note via gmail, and as I was closing, it indicated "draft", so I'm not sure you received it.
Thank you for the good word on the green man - still not quite finished. And BIG hugs to you and your family!
Definitely looking forward to more photos of Spain, and paintings!!

No, Kathryn, I did not receive it! But I am glad I got your message here. Thank you! I can't wait to see what you do with your green man. More photos and paintings of Spain are coming. . .

If more beautiful snow is needed for your wall, how about letting an artist paint it for you. This tranquil picture, by
American painter at the turn of the 20th century, John Henry Twachtman, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP7S7 , is an example of
many others to be found at wahooart.com that can be ordered online from as a canvas print of any size to be delivered
to your door.
