This watercolour, Tiendas en la Albaicin, has won first prize in the Fine Art America on line art competition, “People in the city in watercolour” (Feb 2018). I painted it in 2015 and the original painting was bought by a collector in Ireland.
When I lived in Las Negras I used to give lessons in watercolour to a few individual enthusiasts. Yesterday one of my old students, Helena from Rodalquilar and Barcelona, drove up from the Cabo de Gata to Alhabia for the first lesson in my new home. In Las Negras I conducted the classes in our villa but giving instruction in my garden under the shade of the trees was much more enjoyable and Helena is coming back for another session next week.
My pastel of my granddaughter Ellie and cat Tilly has won the FAA on line art competition – Women Painters – Artist of the Month June 2017.
Here is the link to buy Issue 9 of Paint and Draw magazine. The cover features a painting I did of my neighbour, Ute’s garden. Inside is a six page article, written by me , on how I constructed the painting. There is also a two page article by me on mixing greens which I have illustrated with a painting of St. Just in Roseland church.
