This is the only watercolour I have managed to paint during the last six weeks. This is the street through which you enter my little town of Alhabia and it leads into the main square, Plaza de la Constitución, which is dominated by the church. Like many of the little towns of La Alpujarra Almeriense, the main streets and squares are lined by fine buildings dating from a more prosperous age when oranges, grapes, olive oil, ceramics and mining brought wealth to the region. I found this a very difficult subject. Getting the perspective right was not easy and it was difficult to judge how much detail to include as I did not want to overwork the painting. I scrapped my first two attempts but finally produced this finished watercolour.
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 euros.
