Cuesta de la Atalaya, Nijar

Cuesta de la Atalaya, Nijar

Watercolour of a lane in the old quarter of Nijar at the top of the town.  Almeria, Southern Spain.

In this painting the eye is drawn upwards through this narrow street in Nijar, Cuesta de la Atalaya, to the old tower on top of the hill. There are lots of cats in the streets of Nijar and the cat and dog add foreground interest to the composition. I like painting townscapes and there are many interesting compositions to be found among the narrow streets and old cottages of Nijar.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.

The original is for sale, mounted and framed for 200 euros.

Prints. Limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Arches Aquarelle paper are available for 35 euros..

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
