Retrospective 6 - Segovia - preparing for the Pintura Rapida Competition

Last year i took part on the pintura rapida competition - these are a few sketches i did in the days running up to it. A magical place.

In the run up to the competition, it rained and rained, so we were worried about the painting day.

In the end I chose a spot under cover, just in case. This final picture shows the large (full watercolour sheet) picture that took some 6 hours to finish, i was being careful, we had signers in the square at one point, and the people on the cafe kept changing. The final display by the Acueducto with all the participants (more than 80) was very exhilarating. An exhausting day.
