I spent a few hours in Sorolla"s garden in Madrid. The place is absolutely gorgeous, fresh and inspiring. I loved the house (museum) too, but I arrived in the morning when the garden was still quiet. I was alone actually and started sketching  feeling I could be sat here for hours, looking at the statues , the fountains, the mosaics, all the colors playing together with the sun. As it was the end of my painting workshop my notes were in english though I'm not a native speaker but that was the words which came first! 
I used watercolor and wax watermixable crayons for sketches
The little acrylic paintings were not done on location but once back home in France
I have some more ideas and sketches to develop in future paintings from this place
