Hi everybody,
After so many years with gouache painting, I really enjoy coming back to pastel painting.
A few years ago, I used to paint in Malibu Creek State Park, California. The light was beautiful and they were many spot to paint.
Here, around Madrid, I found my Malibu Creek State Park. It's a small "canyon" near the city of Colmenar viejo. I don't even know if it has a name, but I could go every week-end and still enjoy the landscape and the view.
Not far from there, they used to film a part of the movie "The good, the bad and the ugly", the sequence with the army and the bridge, almost at the end of the movie.

The first pastel was little bit larger but I didn't like the composition. So I framed it.
