Retiro Park is Madrid’s Central Park, with lots of grand avenues, topiary bushes, peacocks (!), statuary and long allees of trees.  These beautiful pale, leafless poplars had a great presence, and reminded me of Charles Burchfield’s wonderful, electric poplars*.  Original, small, watercolour on Arches 100% cotton 140lb white paper.
