Dear Steemians and WOX friends: here is another exclusive post I would like to share with you. These are sketches that I publish only on WOX, showing a bit of my artistic process behind the scenes. Click here to see the first post in this series.
This sketch, one of several preliminary drawings for a large watercolor, shows part of the Monforte Gardens in Valencia, Spain. The trees, ponds, shrubs, fountains, marble sculptures and geometric, maze-like hedges were designed to replicate the estate of a wealthy Roman aristocrat.
Today the gardens offer a quiet haven from the racket of the city and, not surprisingly, a favorite location for weddings (and other romantic encounters.)
