Flying Moleskin - Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal
acrylic 7.5"x10"
This is my contribution to the Flying Moleskins project for Vern Schwarz's book. When I first came across Vern's blog and became aware of his wonderful work, he was in the process of painting a large scene of Lisbon - actually just the other side of the large archway looking out through it, and since we love Lisbon, I thought I'd do a painting of it as well.
