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.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
