Postcard From Spain

Hola Spain!  Spanish is one language I have never had to perform in and have very little knowledge of the language other than Hola.  But it is a great background for a Spirited wedding of 2 Gitanos (Romani Peoples in Spain).  Nataliya and her family has traveled to Barcelona for a family wedding.  Of course Nataliya is not revealing too much too soon in her reply to Marcello.  I wonder what she is really thinking.  Well you will have to stay tuned to find out. 

Here is this week's card.  I printed the map and Flamenco dancer from online and used inktense and the dancer with Derwent watercolour pencils.  Not great at this yet as I have just begun experimenting with this medium.  THe postcard back was printed from a file I found online as well. 




Thanks everyone for following my story!  And thank you for sharing your story and fabulous art with me.

    great minds indeed Jean, I'd printed out the dancer about six months ago when the kids were doing Spain for a home schooling project, it was one of my daughters that remembered seeing it upstairs and went to fetch it for me :)
