Fishing Boat at Las Negras

las-negras

Fishing boat at Las Negras

This is a view I see nearly every morning when I walk down to the village. A couple of weeks ago this attractive fishing boat, not from Las Negras, was moored for a few days in the perfect spot to make it a focal point of the composition. The fishermen working on the boat, the reflections in the water and the seagulls flying around add life to the scene. I could not miss the opportunity to paint it in watercolours. The little boats from the village are usually pulled up on to the beach and this is the first time I have seen a boat moored here so conveniently.

The medium is watercolour

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 150 euros.

The Alhambra from Sacromonte, Granada

The Alhambra from Sacromonte, Granada

I like this view of the Alhambra from Sacromonte in Granada. Although the peaks of the Sierra Nevada do not provide a snowy backdrop to the castle and palace, the different trees provide a colourful foreground, particularly in autumn when this was painted. A lovely subject for watercolour.

Cuesta Chapiz, Granada

cuesta-chapiz

Cuesta Chapiz

This is the final painting from my last visit to Granada at the end of November. This street, Cuesta Chapiz, runs down to the Rio Darro from the top of the old city. It divides the historic quarters, the Albaicin on the right from Sacromonte on the left and looks across to the Alhambra on the opposite hill. It is a wonderful subject to paint in watercolour, particularly with the beautiful soft light and colours of late autumn. The attractive old buildings are also a pleasure to draw.

St. Just in Roseland Church

st-just-7

St Just in Roseland Church

The beautiful, 13th Century church of St. Just in Roseland is built beside a tidal creek on the south coast of Cornwall. It is one of my favourite Cornish scenes to paint, particularly at high tide when the building and boats are reflected in the water. The last five watercolours  I painted of this church were all commissioned by people who had visited this lovely spot or for presents for couples who were recently married there.

The medium is watercolour
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 2o0 euros.

La Chanca, Almeria

la-chanca

La Chanca, Almeria

This old barrio of Almeria may be one of the poorest and neglected in the City but it is certainly one of the most interesting to paint. The cottages, painted in many different colours, which seems to be the tradition in La Chanca, provide a colourful and bright foreground to the compositions here and the old Moorish castle, the Alcazaba, as usual dominates the scene.

The medium is watercolour
The image size is 350mm x 250mm.

Old Door and Pots – Puerta Vieja y Macetas

door

Old Door and Potsthere is an organic, ecological

This wooden  door belongs to an old, ruinous house in the little village of Los Molinos del Rio Aguas near Sorbas, Almeria. I thought it would make an interesting subject to paint with the pots of aloe vera on the doorstep and the overhanging, flowering climber, but it was a difficult subject to capture in watercolour as there are so many  different textures here with the old walls, wooden door, pots and plants. Also the light was tricky. There is a small, organic and ecological farming community in the village. I guess the aloe vera must have been put here by them.

The medium is watercolour. The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 euros.

San Bartolomé, the Albaicin, Granada

San Bartolomé, Albaicin, Granada

When I was about to start this painting I received an email from the editor of Paint and Draw magazine offering to commission me to contribute a masterclass article on how I paint and structure a watercolour. I agreed and used this painting to illustrate the article. This meant photographing the painting at every stage of its creation and writing instructively about the process. The painting is featured in Issue 5 of Pint and Draw now on sale – https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/design/paint-and-draw-magazine-subscription/ I think it is a great composition of a lovely corner of old Granada.
