Darro

Allngside the Darro

The last of  my latest series of watercolours of Granada in Summer. This narrow, cobbled street runs from the Plaza Nueva alongside the river Darro beneath the old Moorish quarter, the Albaicin. The street is lined with lovely old buildings which are great to paint and provide many interesting compositions.

Patio in Sacromonte, Granada

Patio-S

Patio in Sacromonte, Granada

Wandering around the narrow, cobbled streets on the Sacromonte hill in old Granada I always come across little compositions which are a joy to paint. This colourful patio in front of one of the cave houses is typical. The decorations and the blue paint reflect the Moorish origins of this fascinating, ancient quarter of this lovely City.

The Square in Summer

Bib-Rambla

Plaza Bib Rambla, Granada

Plaza Bib Rambla. I have painted this lovely square in the centre of Granada several times. At the heart of the “Christian” part of the city it is surrounded by beautiful 19th Century buildings and overlooked by the great Cathedral nearby. It is a lined with cafe’s and shops along the sidewalks and is a pretty spot in summer with its leafy lime trees and flowers around the central fountain adding to colour of the visitors strolling around.

The medium is watercolour
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.

Sacromonte and the Alhambra, Granada

Granada

Sacromonte and the Alhambra

Painted from the Sacromonte hill looking across to the Alhambra and down towards the modern city with the hills behind. Usually artists paint the Alhambra from the Albaicin so they can capture the backdrop of the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada. In summer though, when there is no snow on the mountains, this offers an interesting alternative composition. The lush, summer greenery is beautiful but makes it difficult to achieve the areal perspective. This is one of the few views which includes the Alhambra and the later, great Cathedral in the modern city centre. You can just make out the Cathedral between the trees right of centre.

The medium is watercolour
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 220 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.

The Alhambra from the Albaicin, Granada

Albaicin

The Alhambra from the Albaicin

Another painting from my recent visit to Granada. The old, Moorish quarter of the Albaicin on the hill opposite the Alhambra offers endless compositions to paint and draw and I am always finding new ones on my visits to the city. I have not painted this particular view before but it is typical with the attractive old buildings, narrow alley and wonderful view of the Alhambra.  I have tried to illustrate the strong sunshine and lush greenery of early summer in this painting.

The medium is watercolour
