Four of them have been with pastels of nudes (all different). I did not promote this competition on facebook as voting was not open to the general public.

Selling Spain In Cornwall

La Huerta

La Huerta

This watercolour, La Huerta, of a corner of a field at SunSeed eco farming project, Los Molinos del Rio Aguas, Almeria, Southern Spain has just been sold by Lander Gallery in Lemon Street, Truro Cornwall. It is unusual to sell a painting of Spain in my old home town of Truro so I am pleased about this.

This delightful huerta, with all its myriad shades of green, made a very different subject from the usual Almerian scenes I am accustomed to paint. I liked the effect of the dappled sunshine and the strong contrast of light and dark. The scarecrow gives a touch of humour while the wooden fork and the hens give foreground interest.

Plaza Bib Rambla

Plaza Bib Rambla, Granada

Plaza Bib Rambla, Granada

I was asked to select ony of my watercolours for the on line contest “Your Very Best Watercolour” and chose this recent painting of Plaza Bib Rambla, Granada. Previously I always painted this square looking the opposite way to feature the Cathedral tower and with the light behind me and from what I have seen of other paintings this is the standard, popular aspect. Here though I am looking away from the Cathedral to the bottom of the square and into the light. What attracted me, apart from the beautiful buildings and autumn colors, was the interesting shadows cast by the low November sun which added interest to the composition.

Winner of the competition
