Douro Valley, Portugal

Vintage House View, 6 x 8

I just returned from a European painting trip. I plan on a making several posts on the experience. For port wine lovers, the Douro Valley in Portugal is a must see trip. This plein air piece was painted one morning from the balcony of my CS Vintage House hotel room which I recommend wholeheartedly.
As you can see from the photo of me painting this scene, it was a true paradise. As I've mentioned in other posts, a scene is open to interpretation and artist license. In this instance, I changed the pillars in the pool house to an arch and made the pool into a garden area.
