Abrucena

Here is a watercolour of the little town of Abrucena in La Alpujarra Almeriense beneath the peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains. At this time of year the trees have lost most of their leaves and there is snow on the mountain peaks. It makes a good composition though and the winter light and shadows are beautiful.

 

The image size is 380mm x 280mm.

The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.

Lavanderas de Terque

Terque

Lavanderas de Terque

I started this painting of the women of Terque over a month ago. They were dressed in traditional costume at the village lavadero during the annual day of celebrating the old way of life in La Alpujarra. After a fall last month, when I badly bruised my right side, I was unable to work on it again until last week. At last I can show you the finished watercolour.

Comencé esta pintura de las mujeres de Terque hace más de un mes. Se vestían con traje tradicional en el pueblo lavadero durante el día anual de la celebración de la antigua forma de vida en la Alpujarra. Después de una caída el mes pasado, cuando me magullaron gravemente el lado derecho, no pude volver a trabajar en él hasta la semana pasada. Por fin te puedo mostrar la acuarela terminada.

The image size is 380mm x 280mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 50 euros. They can be purchased direct from me.

This watercolour I painted is of a view looking down through one of the main streets of the town.

The image size is 380mm x 280mm.

Martian Landscape

Mars

Martian Landscape

For the last few weeks, the planet Mars has been in opposition to Earth and is a spectacular sight in the clear night sky of Almeria. Its red colour is due to iron oxide on its rocky surface, the same colour as some of the iron rich mountains here in La Alpujarra. My inspiration for the painting is the desert landscape where I live and the incredible photographs taken on Mars by Curiosity Rover.

The image size is 450mm x 300mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 50 euros. They can be purchased direct from me.

On the right the narrow, cobbled street is lined with some magnificent old buildings of the Albaicin, The Rio Darro flows alongside to the left and the trees on the river bank cast dappled shadows over the cobbles. A beautiful subject to paint which I captured in watercolour.

Casita de Sacromonte

Sacromonte

Casita de Sacromonte

This painting is a watercolour sketch of the front of a little cottage on the edge of the old gypsy quarter of Granada, Sacromonte. I liked the old, painted door, the window and the chairs in complementary colours. Next to this cottage is a small, rustic bar and in front a little square from which there are superb views of the Alhambra.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 150 Euros.
