Las Caldas - Asturias

Hello!!

This time we didn't get to have a hike, but rather a walk around Caldas town called the green path, anyways I took a spot next to a river and did a video of the process of the painting. :)

The Hiking Painter: Peñerudes - Los Alfilorios Reservoir

Peñerudes - Embalse de los Alfilorios

Hello World!
On my last hike I was lucky enough to have some friends coming along with me, since I usually go by myself, this was a wonderful opportunity to do different activities in the open air besides painting.

Our first plan was to go on a hiking trail in La Collada up to Monsacro, but when we were half trail there, it started drizzling, we found some nice people who advised us that up in Monsacro was actually raining, and my friends were not wearing appropriate shoes, so we had to head back and look for an alternative. This actually turned unexpectedly better, since the place we found in Peñerudes was completely clear from people, something I really enjoy to be able to paint without many observants.


Here are the paintings I did, as well as a video, where you can see a shot of my painting easel inspired by James Gurney's lightweight easel  (check out his blog and his videos on youtube, he is one of my daily inspirations!)

The Hiking Painter: San Andres Waterfalls of Guanga

San Andres - Cascadas de Guanga 

Hello World!
On my last hike I went to the town of San Andres, in Asturias - Spain. I choose this hiking route due to its beauty and the fact that it has waterfalls! The Waterfalls of Guanga.

I managed to paint a few quick landscape paintings, a close up of some flowers, and a view of one of the waterfalls.

This wouldn't be a hiking post without the indications to get there, so here is the link from wikiloc if you are around the site. 

Here is a video of my adventure! There was a moment when I got lost haha! I must say, I did this route twice, first I went by myself, and the second time I got some friends who came along. :)


Brushes, out!

Blog Entry: 
The Hiking Painter
2017 May 01


I've decided to start blogging my pleinair painting process!
Today I decided to go anywhere where I could see the mountains, and since I'm living in Asturias, you can almost see the mountains from anywhere. Still, I needed to feel that I was indeed in the mountain itself. So, following a friend's advice, I went to a cute town nearby called Soto del Rey, and from there I went to Tellego. There were not many people, some random runners and bikers on the route, but that's about it. It was my first time going on a hike by myself just to paint, and that actually felt great. I plan on doing this every week, let's see how it turns out! :)

After a light walk around the little town, I went on up to a friend's town called Tellego. Just 30min away from where I was previously, where I found a very curios cow. She approached me so closely I thought she was going to jump and hug me haha!

I stayed there to capture the landscape, they also had a bar in the area if you get hungry! The people were really friendly and charming. I couldn't paint anymore since the sky turned really rainy and it started drizzling. 
So forth until my next pleinairhike! :)
