Ocho Balcones (No.5): The Summer Bathroom
The fifth gouache painting of my collection Ocho Balcones is not strictly speaking a balcony. That is to say the window it features sits right next door to the fifth balcony of our apartment, located within the light bathroom we loved to use in the summer. But with its square framing, this window provides a far more interesting reflection on the same view, not least because on the windowsill sits my first and only ever completed sculpture of a female nude created some 4 years ago and delicately transported out to Mallorca from London.
I love the time of the day when the sun hits the buildings opposite at an angle and the result is a striped sun dance bouncing across the coloured facades. And now that the effect is captured in my painting, I can rest assured that even with the changing seasons, a little slice of summertime in the old town of Palma has been captured to enjoy, siempre.
