Recently I was on a trip to Mexico for a wedding of a friend. Good times… really good times :) And since I made that long trip to other side of the planet called earth anyways, I combined it with a stint to Aruba, where another friend lives (thanks Maga!).
So two weeks, and much celebrating to do, so not too much time for art. But I managed to do one or the other drawing, watercolor painting and photo. So here are the goods…. Part one:
Of course I had to paint the beach. I got caught up by the waves several times though since I sat a bit too close. You can see my shadow on the lower edge. So the painting suffered a bit. Makes it look more natural-rough kinda.
Just when I was saying that I doubted the stories about wild crocodiles eating other grooms-mates of weddings in Cancun, we actually saw one. Knowing now thanks to google images how high crocodillos jump, it maybe wasn’t smart to get so close.
We also went to trips – the following one is on our way to Chichen Itza. It’s a painting of a Cenote. Those are sinkholes in the ground, where the Mayans used to throw human sacrifices. Now you can swim there… which sadly I had to skip, so I can use the half hour for the image.
In Chichen Itza I was not allowed to paint – despite roughly 50.000 Mexicans in there that carved and painted souvenirs. So no pic.
Mexicans seem to love cookies! Half the supermarkets were filled with a huge selection. I could not resist this design.
After Cancun I had a one day trip to Miami-Beach. Here’s a little vid of some birds there… man they have the best life, chasing waves day in day out.
More to come in the next part.
