'Mojacar Fiesta' (available)

6" x 8" oil on gessoed board  


This Spaniard on horseback was part of the annual Moors and Christians fiesta in the village of Mojacar. The parade starts when the sun is going down and lasts several hours. This handsome rider posed for me so that I could get some good photos, unfortunately the light was not very good because of the time of day and he had his back to the mountain, but in spite of that, I think that I managed to get quite a few usable pics. The evening ends up with the inevitable loud bangs and lots of fireworks.
