Me with Helena
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.
Girl with Cat
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.

This pastel of La Isleta is the subject of a workshop article I was commissioned to write for Paint and Draw magazine. The article features in the May issue which is on sale now. It appears on page 78 and covers six pages with description and photos of how I constructed the painting. The original pastel was bought by a couple for a villa in Desert Springs, Almeria.
