El Rincon De Manuel

On the edge of my village, Las Negras, in The Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Almeria, Southern Spain is a small traditional farm where I go to buy fresh vegetables. While I was waiting in the yard I looked at this rustic store shed and thought it would make an interesting subject for a painting. The old door with flaking paint, donkey harnesses hanging off the wall and the usual farmyard junk would be fun to draw. I wanted to include Manuel, the farmer, to add life to the composition so, when he returned from the fields with my broad beans, spring onions and lettuce, I asked him if he would pose on his chair in front of the shed. There is a colony of pale ginger cats on the farm so I decided to include one of these too.

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.
