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.
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.

La Cantante De Granada

Singer

La Cantante De Granada

When I spent two nights in Granada at the end of May, each evening I sat in the Plaza Nueva to listen to this young girl singing in the street. She sang, with a lot of emotion, what I think were flamenco songs, in an enchanting voice. I also like the costume she wore. I immediately thought she would make a good subject for a pastel drawing. Here is the finished artwork.

The image size is 450mm x 300mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.

Rincon de Almócita

Almocita

Rincon de Almócita

Almócita is one of the prettiest little villages in La Alpujarra Almeriense and has a special ambience. We visit it regularly. The village has many attractive corners and narrow cobbled streets lined with pretty cottages which make interesting subjects to paint. I captured this cottage door with flower pots in watercolour. I particularly liked the light and shadows in this composition.

The image size is 380mm x 280mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.

The Alhambra from the Albaicin

Alhambra

The Alhambra from the Albaicin

From the little squares of the old Moorish quarter of Granada, the Albaicin there are excellent views of the Alhambra on the opposite hillside. This is the little Placeta de Carvajales which I came across on my visit to the city a month ago. I liked the light and fresh greens of early summer and the way the trees framed the castle.

The medium is watercolour on Arches 300gm paper.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.

Carrera Del Darro, Granada

Darro

Carrera Del Darro, Granada

This is the first painting I have completed for several months. I was suffering from arthritis in my finger joints earlier this year which made painting painful. This has eased with the onset of warm weather and I recently visited Granada for a few days to get some fresh inspiration.

I love this narrow, cobbled street that runs alongside the River Darro below the old Moorish quarter, the Albaicin. In early summer the trees are full of fresh, green foliage and the sunlight through them casts dappled shadows.

The medium is watercolour on Arches 300gm paper.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
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.

Pepe the donkey was grazing in a lane near my home when a black and white cat came out of a farm gate and approached him. They appeared to be friends as they touched noses and followed each other around. I thought they would make a charming painting. I first decided to capture them in watercolour but changed my mind as I think pastel works better here.

The medium is pastel on Sennelier pastel card.

The image size is 450mm x 300.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.
