The image that you see here looks great printed on fine art canvas, but other mediums will produce wonderful results as well.

A street bar just around the corner under the shades on a sunny day in Costa do Sauípe, Bahia, Brazil.

I find that place so cozy and a great motif source for a Giclee Art Work. What do you think?

I was nearly 16 the first time I rode the coast of Bahia, Brazil, after waves.

We were 5: My Dad, my stepmother, and her 2 kids: Roberto, 13 at the time and Lucia, 16.

We stopped for dinner at Sauípe, which was very primitive at the time, and recognized some friends from São Paulo.

They told us that the road to our next stop (I don’t remember which) was blocked and, that we had better stay in for that night.

We went for a stroll by the shore with our friends and I remember feeling the greatest scent of the ocean ever in my life in that far away from civilization beach, lost in the long coastline of Bahia.

The next morning I woke up earlier than the others and surfed the most transparent waves I saw in my whole life.

I made several sketches that day that became the base for future Giclee Art Work. Art sketches are great to fix scenes on my mind for future paintings or drawings. I didn’t know it would take me that long to digitally paint this one.


Costa do Sauipe is an innate heaven amid the shore and palm vegetation of Bahia.

The reefs’ strong tides divide the white large sand strips into sections that form natural lakes and are great for swimming.

The place is also good for fishing. In a large strip of sand, several bars, restaurants, and fast rustic food huts can be found very near the calm-water south bank of the Sauípe River. On the other riverbank, you will find  a thick marsh.

Just 50 miles from Salvador, the resorts available have a great entertainment structure and full hospitality.

Full and direct contact with the beach areas, surrounding vegetation and fantastic sunny weather are characteristic of the region.

Costa do Sauípe has one of the largest resort complex projects in South America

      Hi, Jane,

      Thank you for your kind words. Yes, every Brazilian city has at least one of those very informal street bars. Not so many are installed in a seashore paradise like Sauipe tho.

    Hey Caito,

    That is a very nice piece of artwork. I am curious, what was the inspiration behind the artwork? Is there a fond childhood memory tied to that restaurant, or is it it that the restaurant is an example of the beauty that is Costa do Sauipe?

    Just for clarification purposes, is this your work, or that of someone else? If it is yours, what was it that brought you to art? And what exactly is this form of art called? Sorry for all the questions. It is a very nice piece, but I like to believe that every piece of art has some kind of story behind it.

      Hello, Jorge,

      Thank you for your sympathetic words.

      That picture was develot from a photograph taken by a friend. She wanted me to adapt the picture using my impressionist art style since she new I was planning a series about Brazil.

      I also like US and worldwide scapes as motifs and am always fetching photos with my friends to help me with that. I wish I can be able to travel and take my own pictures more often, like I’ve done with some of my pieces.

      Art emerged for me when I was about 11 yo kinda runs in both my father and mother’s families. I started formal training at that time and it evolved to digial fine art during the 90’s


      PS: I’m curious: Are you from portuguese, brazilian, or latin descent? Your name is spelled the same way we do here.
