Antonio Carlos

Antonio Carlos, oil on card, 18 x 20 cm




This little town features an unusually large Cathedral, in a sort of Deco style with twin spires. It is reminiscent in some odd way of the Chrysler building. The town is orderly and very well suited for painting with many little hills and changes in level offering different views. Ergo, I shall continue to explore it and and its environs.

It has the second highest life expectancy in Brazil, at 77.9 years.

Four pictures from the mountains: the last two are large. The square format is not that easy for landscape subjects- probably simply for the reason that the compositional conventions for landscapes are based around a golden section rectangle, and the square format necessitates adaptations.
