Cala de San Pedro


Cala de San Pedro

San Pedro is an isolated cove which can only be reached by a cliff footpath from my village, Las Negras or by boat. The colours of the Mediterranean are fabulous here in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Almeria, Southern Spain and the aloe vera, cactii and trees behind the beach provide foreground interest and add colour. These new paintings offer affordable art to visitors to our village although they can still be purchased by collectors on line as I ship my paintings to collectors all over the world. They are painted using the same professional pigments and on the same heavy Arches watercolour paper which I use for my more detailed and expensive work. The difference is that they are slightly smaller and the style is freer.
The size of the image is 340mm x 240mm.
The original painting is for sale for 50 euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, A4 size, are available for 20 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.
