One of the towns we stayed in while touring around Portugal was Porto. Really a nice town especially the area down by the river - so many painting opportunities. I managed a quick study of some old doors seen below the church close to the water. Would have liked to have done more but there was so much to see and we were only there for a few days. Hopefully a longer trip will happen in the future. This study in oils on canvas, 7" X 5".

Looks like they've been bashing the door with their cart...still, it adds interest to the doors

Probably right John - certainly been bashing them with something. The shop wasn't open when we passed but it was the texture of the doors that attracted me to the scene so didn't really matter, although I would have liked to have seen inside.
