Pepé The Donkey

Pepe

Pepé, the donkey

Another animal painting but this time I have used pastel which is my favourite medium for human portraits. I often come across Pepé, a six month old donkey, when I pass his yard and stable on one of my regular walks. I took to him the first time I saw him and thought he would make a lovely subject to draw. The last time I encountered him he and his mother had been allowed out and were grazing in the lane along which I was walking so I was able to get close to and speak to him which was more difficult when he was behind the fence in his corral.

The medium is pastel

The image size is 440mm x 320mm.
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.

Calle Fuente, Alhabia

Calle-Fuente-Alhabia

Calle Fuente, Alhabia

This is the only watercolour I have managed to paint during the last six weeks. This is the street through which you enter my little town of Alhabia and it leads into the main square, Plaza de la Constitución, which is dominated by the church. Like many of the little towns of La Alpujarra Almeriense, the main streets and squares are lined by fine buildings dating from a more prosperous age when oranges, grapes, olive oil, ceramics and mining brought wealth to the region. I found this a very difficult subject. Getting the perspective right was not easy and it was difficult to judge how much detail to include as I did not want to overwork the painting. I scrapped my first two attempts but finally produced this finished watercolour.

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 35 euros and A4 20 euros.They can be purchased direct from me.

Calle de Ohanes

Ohanes

Calle de Ohanes

This is a watercolour painting of one of the narrow, cobbled streets in the little mountain town of Ohanes near my home in La Alpujarra Almeriense. The lanes in the towns and villages here, with their old cottages, flowerpots, vines and always a cat, are a joy to paint.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 100 euros.

Rincon De Terque

Ricon-de-Terque

Rincon de Terque

In my neighbouring village of Terque, in La Alpujarra Almeriense, is an old quarter with some beautiful houses known as casas monumentales which were built over 100 years ago when the area was prosperous  because of the wealth from the vineyards, orange groves and mines. Here, at the end of a little cul de sac, is this charming corner with an open door to the garden of one of these lovely houses. A delightful subject to paint in watercolour and the old millstone makes a nice feature.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting has been SOLD.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 35 euros and A4 20 euros.They can be purchased direct from me.

Trabajando El Esparto

Esparto

Trabajando el Esparto

This lady was at the traditional crafts fair at my neighbouring village of Terque last Sunday. She was demonstrating the old craft of mimbre – making products from esparto grass. I asked her to pose for me as I thought she would make a wonderful subject for a portrait. I love the colours of her traditional costume, the character in her face and the working of her hands.

The medium is pastel
