Making Of ‘Peaceful Day’
This year I went on a holiday to Scotland and I was completely blown away by its beauty. All that greenery is not something we see a lot here in Portugal where the weather is sunnier and drier. Scotland also has an architectural patronage that makes you feel as if you’re in a fantasy movie. Beautiful ruins in the middle of breathtaking mountains are not something you see everywhere. Basically, it was a dream trip! So, when I returned home, my head was filled with ideas and I just wanted to start painting all these things that I had seen. Having taken about 1,000 photos and a lot of them in panoramic format I had a lot of good reference material I could use to revive my memories. Two of the most striking things I saw were Glen Coe and Eilean Donan Castle. Look them up on the Internet and hopefully you will recognize my influences.
