Lost In Toledo

A few years ago, on a trip to Spain, my wife and I stayed in Toledo one night. After arriving there my wife was tired and took a little nap, I went out and explored the town. I found the view of El Greco’s painting along with a thousand other remarkable views of toledo. Dusk came and I thought I had better get back to the hotel. After 20 minutes of walking I started recognizing streets that i knew were on the opposite end of town from the hotel. I was completely turned around and lost. I thought, “what a joy, to be lost in the streets of Toledo!”

Here is a gouache study I did based on that episode.
