Saying goodbye to the sun at Rio Vermelho. Despidiendo al sol en Rio Vermelho.

Bahia, Brasil.

Sunset at Rio Vermelho. 51 x 61 cm. Atardecer en Rio Vermelho. Brasil.

My first day in Bahía was so long. I arrived at 6 am, had dancing rehearsals at noon and danced at Rio Vermelho at night for Yemanja´s festival.( Yemanja is the Sea Goddess in the yoruba´s religion) Fortunately, the next day we had it free so, after resting, some friends and I decided to return to Rio Vermelho and enjoy the popular celebration in another way, I made a sketch there( which I already posted some weeks ago) and I´ve made this painting now to maintain that magical sunset at that magical place. Brazil is very special.

Mi primer día en Bahía fue larguísimo. Aterricé a las seis de la mañana, tuve ensayos de danza a mediodía y por la noche participamos en una cabalgata en Rio Vermelho para honrar a Yemanjá, la Diosa del Mar en la religión yoruba. Afortunadamente, al día siguiente lo tuvimos libre y, tras descansar, unos amigos y yo volvimos a Rio Vermelho para conocer y disfrutar la fiesta de otra manera. Hice algún apunte allí( que ya mostré hace unas semanas) y ahora realicé esta pintura para rememorar ese mágico atardecer en tan mágico lugar. Brasil es muy especial.
