I have been spending time both painting and getting to know Barcelona. The two photos included in this post were taken near the port. The Christopher Columbus statue essentially demarcates the port and behind it starts La Rambla Catalunya.
I recently had to return to Barna Art for more supplies and to order some canvas and stretchers. That store is beyond amazing! The employees are knowledgeable and helpful. One of the things I truly love about art supply stores in Europe is that you can actually find people who make the stretchers for you. In Barna Art, I could not only define the exact measurements I needed (down to the millimeter) but also could select the type of fabric I wanted stretched over the custom stretchers. And making things even better, they had a wide variety of linen! One more reason to love Barcelona.
