Spain Camino series. Melancholy was the feeling given me by these lyrical buildings, not deeply sad but a poetic rendition of their souls. An expressionist work inspired by the village of Villafranca del Bierzo on the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James) pilgrim route. 2011.
Another work inspired by the lyrical village of Villafranca del Bierzo on the Camino pilgrim journey. We were here very briefly but the pretty architecture left an indelible impression - not the stunning sort but with delicate poetism that grows on one.
I was attracted to the light play on these buildings and intrigued by the plaque on the right, wondering if it was an ancient clock. But when it comes to painting, the composition lines inspired by the scene took over with colour to play a big part in the mood created which is central to me for this piece. I always feel buildings have souls and wonder if they can speak, what would they say? A bluesy melancholic expression feels right here, at least to me.
