Aveiro /Portugal (SOLD)

Aveiro (Portugal)

Acrylic on canvas

Composite painting of the town of Aveiro (riverfront and beach town at Costa Nova). Due to its system of canals and boats similar to the Italian city of Venice, it is called “the Venice of Portugal.)  The houses along the beach are brightly colored in stripes. Fishermen used to store their fishing materials in these cottages, now they’re used as beach houses.  The striped houses face the river, but the behind these houses sits Barra Beach with its century-old lighthouse, which is the highest in the country.  This is where the Ria de Aveiro meets the sea.  Another feature of this charming fishing village is the narrow streets lined with hand-placed grey tiles, irregularly placed creating beautiful patterns beneath your feet.
