La Alcarria Series (1984–1986)

During the mid-1980s, Yolanda del Riego frequently spent weekends in La Alcarria region, in a village located on the shore of the Entrepeñas Reservoir. This series of oil paintings on paper was inspired by the canyons formed by the Tagus river (the name of Entrepeñas means “between rocks”), the hills of olive trees, and the winds and waves of the “Sea of Castile", the name by which the reservoir was known.

A mediados de los años 80, Yolanda del Riego pasaba sus fines de semana en la región de La Alcarria, en un pueblo ubicado en la orilla del Embalse de Entrepeñas. Las obras en esta serie de pinturas al óleo sobre papel están inspiradas en los cañones formados por el río Tajo, las colinas de olivos y los vientos y olas del "Mar de Castilla", el nombre por el cual se conocía el embalse.
