Divertimento #27: Altamira Drawings

Earth tone colors of Altamira drawings inspired this Divertimento.

27R altamira

Altamira was described by Henri Moore as source of inspiration for the great artists like  Miró, Tapies, Millares, Merz and Barceló, who were involved with The Altamira School. Great prehistoric drawings continue to be an inspiration to artists till these days.

Cave of Altamira and Palaeolithic Cave Art of Northern Spain are on the World Heritage List. Wonderful place to visit.

Divertimento #25: Purple Land

Henry Hudson in his book referred to Uruguay as a Purple Land. Most likely because of the stretches of the purple sage which cover the rolling hills of the countryside.

This inspired me to create this Divertimento dedicated to this awesome country.

Divertimento #24: Nature

Rainforest, jungle and awesome exotic animals were inspiration to my Divertimento called Nature.

24R     green frog rain forest

This blue frog with black spots is very tiny, just about 2 inches. It looks so lovely – like some fairy tale creature, but this blue frog is poisonous.
