Bar Relatame Olives
6" x 6", watercolour
My watercolour of the dish of olives we had at the Bar Relatame in Seville, Spain. The little neighbourhood bar and eatery was within walking distance our Airbnb apartment. We were in Seville for about four weeks back in January, 2017 before moving to Granada for our last week in Spain.
This little painting actually took me ages to complete. I was never quite happy with how the new watercolour paints I bought were behaving. It was like learning how to paint all over again. All I can say was that layering was difficult. It was a challenge to not overwork it, but still having it look finished enough with the right amount of detail.
