Hector I like it very much also. Do you use ink or black watercolor in this one?

nice, Hector

I find your strokes interesting in this one...as if you "drew" with the brush...not too wet, it looks

I really enjoy the palette you use, it certainly helps to emphasise the SPanish feel of your work I get the impression that the handmade paper absorbs the paint unevenly which leaves your painting with interesting textures.

Very nice painting, Hector, I love anything with arches

Great colors and textures, Hector. The paint seems to move so freely and yet the architecture is very distinct.

I think the shadow on the ground under the arch could go a little bit darker--just for a tad more drama. And, for comositional reasons, I think I would give a bit more color or texture or pattern to the white wall on the right..

BUt these are quibbles, I think it is nice as is

Thank you very much for your comments and advices...

Dolors, I use ink only for drawing lines... shadows are made with watercolor

See you
