Paulo J. Mendes is a charming Portuguese watercolorist at Etsy. The delicate colors and amazing detail in these small paintings reveal an artist who loves where he lives and the people and animals that he meets every day. I had a hard time deciding which ones to feature because he has so many to choose from. I hope you like my choices.
I feel as if I've been to this wonderful part of the world after looking at these. It's warm here, of course, and the food is wonderful. The people are welcoming and friendly. You probably stay up a bit later than you do at home, sitting outside, talking, sipping Quinta do Noval. It's all in these paintings, isn't it?
