A Lesson In Watercolour

DSC02036aW

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.
