Lisbon - View from the Tagus River


I finished this pastel yesterday. It was painted from a photo I took while crossing the Tagus River on the ferry. I had taken the train from Albufeira to Lisbon. The ticket included the ferry because there was no railroad bridge across the river.

The pastel is 12" X 18" on Wallis sanded paper. I used Pan Pastels, Nu-Pastels,  Rembrandt, and Unison pastels plus Derwent pastel pencils.

There's something special about a black squirrel.

Street scenes photographed while just wandering around the old city of Dubrovnik.

Walking along the old city walls.

Small church built right against the wall.

Some of the streets become shot tunnels near the
walls where there are stairs up to the top.

All streets running east toward the mountain end in stairs.

Another narrow street ending in a open plaza.

The main street that runs from the gate at the harbor to the north
gate on the other side of the city. Notice the shine on the marble street.

The first stop on our cruise out of Venice was Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Outside of Dubrovnik harbor.

A view of Dubrovnik showing the walls of the old city and the port.

View of the port from atop of the city walls.

Outdoor cafe on the main plaza just inside the walls.

Down one of the two large streets. There were no cars, scooters or
bicycles allowed within the old walled section of the city.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
