Puertas Azul

This is Ute’s cottage in Las Negras. Ute is a retired German stage actress and this charming, traditional Almerian house is her home. She has created a beautiful garden which I am going to paint a detail of next but I also love her terrace with its blue doors, rustic furniture, bougainvillea and the dappled light.
The medium is watercolour.
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting has been SOLD to a collector in England.

PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for 35 euros and can be purchased direct from me.

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 pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. 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 portraiture and 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.

    The way you work with water color is so compelling and realistic! Your artwork is beautiful. I love how you show the scenery around you. Great blog.

    What is about a blue door that is so compelling?
    This is beautifully rendered. Each of your paintings is so vivid, and different how I’ve seen watercolors used before.
