Paintings sold during the last week


Boats at Las Negras

Sales of original paintings have been very few during July and the first part of August. I think I only sold a couple during this time. Summer visitors here rarely buy art and it is also a poor time for on line sales. As usual for the end of August sales have picked up during the last week. First I sold this watercolour to a couple from France visiting Las Negras.


Sacromonte, Granada

A collector from the UK bought this watercolour of  Sacromonte, Granada on line.


Mayte Beltran – Flamenco with shawl


Mayte Beltran in Red and Black

Mayte Beltran herself bought these  watercolour studies of her Flamenco dancing at the Las Negras fiesta. She is staying in the village for a few days and called round our house. She is a charming young woman and of course I let her have the paintings for a very special price.


La Rubia

Finally another collector from the UK bought this nude in pastel, La Rubia on line.

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.
