Yet another Travel Poster - this one is Chicago from Lake Michigan. That's the Willis (old Sears) Tower peeping out above the "mist" ! We were there in 2004.
A very fast sketchette of the Alambra in Granada from the Mirador in front of the Church of San Nicholas across a very steep and narrow valley. It had to be a very quick sketch - friends were waiting. I perched myself astride (like on a horse) a low stone wall to stop the crowds on the placa pushing me off the wall and down a 20 foot drop to the road below. I met a very nice Spanish lady who had enough English to say she liked my painting - I only had enough Spanish to say grathias!

While my wife and friends went on a riverboat trip on the Canal de Alfonso X111 - an arm off the Rio Guardalquivir I spent the morning drawing the Cathedral and part of the afternoon painting it. I was sitting under a shady tree just outside the exit from the stunning Alcazar which we had visited the day before. A guide on one of the many packs of tourists that stood in front of me while I was drawing said to them that it was the best view of the Tower - my instinct to sit in that spot was spot on!
