The British couple, who commissioned my recent pastel of Las Negras for their villa in Desert Springs, asked for another Almerian coastal scene to hang with it in the same room so I painted this view of La Isleta del Moro for them. Fortunately the light last week was similar to that when I painted their pastel of Las Negras a few weeks ago so the paintings make a good pair.
Paint and Draw magazine asked me to write another workshop article for them so I have done this describing how I created this painting illustrating it with photos of the various stages. I think this will be published in next month’s issue.
The image size of the painting is 50cm x 32cm and I used Sennelier artist’s soft pastels on Sennelier pastel card.
