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.

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

The image size is 440mm x 320mm.
The original painting is for sale for 350 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 is the view of my nearest town, Alhabia, from the other side of the Rio Nacimiento. I like the contrast between the green, fertile valley below the town and the barren mountains behind.

A Lane in Laujar

Laujar

A Lane in Laujar

My first painting in over two months. Since I moved house I have had little time as there has been so much to do on our new cortijo and the summer has been very hot, but there is plenty to inspire me around my new home in the Alpujarra Almeriense. I was particularly attracted to this lane in Laujar de Andarax, the centre of the wine producing area of the Alpujarra. The narrow lane with its old buildings looking across the valley of the Rio Andarax towards the Sierras reminded me of the Albaicin in Granada. Even the cat posed obligingly.

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

Girl with Cat

EllieW

Niña con Gato

This is a pastel portrait of my 11 year old granddaughter Ellie. She has just been to stay with me for a week and I took the opportunity to create this portrait in pastels. I drew her holding my cat Tilly. The cat has been with me for 14 years and has made cameo appearances in many of my paintings. I wanted her to pose holding the cat as it tells a story more than just a formal portrait.

The medium is pastel

The image size is 500mm x 320mm.
The original painting is not for sale.

Ute’s Garden – Flowers and Pots

Ute's

Ute’s Garden – Flowers and Pots

Another painting of my neighbour, Ute’s garden. This time I have taken a wider view as I wanted to incorporate her colourful flowers and interesting pots into the composition of this patio. As usual one of her cats was lounging on a garden chair and I was happy to include it. I use Schmincke Horadam watercolours. The German manufacturers of the paints sent me a spot card of 35 new colours they have introduced to celebrate their 125th anniversary. The card comprises spots of the new pigments and I had great fun trying out some of the new pure colours, which this subject lends itself to, although most of the painting was done using my usual palette of colours.

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