El Morro Original Oil Painting

Copyright 2010 Maria Soto Robbins
If you visit Havana, Cuba you will have to see El Morro.  It is an impressive fort that can be viewed from miles around as it dominates the port entrance of Havana.This impressive "fortaleza" is perched on a cliff on the other side of the harbor from Old Havana. You can also see it from the Malecon, where everyone congregates to chat and watch the waves go over the seawall and splash the passing cars. It's been so many years that I hardly remember, but I will never forget.

This impressionistic painting was done in oils with palette knife and brushes and it shows this fort which is one of the most famous and recognizable monuments of Havana, Cuba. My painting focuses on the lighthouse and promontory area and on one of the cannons that’s perched on the adjacent rampart . 

Dimension: 11x14x.75 gallery wrapped canvas with staples on the back
Media: Oils
