Antiguas casas del Albaicin, Granada

This is the view looking back along the Carrera del Darro towards the Plaza Nueva in Granada. On the right the narrow, cobbled street is lined with some magnificent old buildings of the Albaicin, The Rio Darro flows alongside to the left and the trees on the river bank cast dappled shadows over the cobbles. A beautiful subject to paint which I captured in watercolour.

The image size is 380mm x 280mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.

Casita de Sacromonte

Sacromonte

Casita de Sacromonte

This painting is a watercolour sketch of the front of a little cottage on the edge of the old gypsy quarter of Granada, Sacromonte. I liked the old, painted door, the window and the chairs in complementary colours. Next to this cottage is a small, rustic bar and in front a little square from which there are superb views of the Alhambra.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 150 Euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 50 euros. They can be purchased direct from me.

La Cantante De Granada

Singer

La Cantante de Granada

When I spent two nights in Granada at the end of May, each evening I sat in the Plaza Nueva to listen to this young girl singing in the street. She sang, with a lot of emotion, what I think were flamenco songs, in an enchanting voice. I also like the costume she wore. I immediately thought she would make a good subject for a pastel drawing. Here is the finished artwork.

The image size is 450mm x 300mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 50 euros. They can be purchased direct from me.

Carrera del Darro

Darro

Carrera Del Darro

This is the first painting I have completed for several months. I was suffering from arthritis in my finger joints earlier this year which made painting painful. This has eased with the onset of warm weather and I recently visited Granada for a few days to get some fresh inspiration.

I love this narrow, cobbled street that runs alongside the River Darro below the old Moorish quarter, the Albaicin. In early summer the trees are full of fresh, green foliage and the sunlight through them casts dappled shadows.

The medium is watercolour on Arches 300gm paper.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 200 Euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 50 euros. They can be purchased direct from me.

The Alhambra from Sacromonte

The Alhambra from Sacromonte

I like this view of the Alhambra from Sacromonte in Granada. Although the peaks of the Sierra Nevada do not provide a snowy backdrop to the castle and palace, the different trees provide a colourful foreground, particularly in autumn when this was painted. A lovely subject for watercolour.

The medium is watercolourThe image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting has been SOLD to a collector in the UK.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 35 euros and A4 20 euros.They can be purchased direct from me.

Cuesta Chapiz

cuesta-chapiz

Cuesta Chapiz

This is the final painting from my last visit to Granada at the end of November. This street, Cuesta Chapiz, runs down to the Rio Darro from the top of the old city. It divides the historic quarters, the Albaicin on the right from Sacromonte on the left and looks across to the Alhambra on the opposite hill. It is a wonderful subject to paint in watercolour, particularly with the beautiful soft light and colours of late autumn. The attractive old buildings are also a pleasure to draw.

The medium is watercolourThe image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 220 euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 35 euros and A4 20 euros.They can be purchased direct from me.

San Bartolomé, Albaicin

San Bartolomé, Albaicin

When I was about to start this painting I received an email from the editor of Paint and Draw magazine offering to commission me to contribute a masterclass article on how I paint and structure a watercolour. I agreed and used this painting to illustrate the article. This meant photographing the painting at every stage of its creation and writing instructively about the process. The painting is featured in Issue 5 of Pint and Draw now on sale – https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/design/paint-and-draw-magazine-subscription/ . I think it is a great composition of a lovely corner of old Granada.

The medium is watercolourThe image size is 350mm x 250mm.
The original painting is for sale for 220 euros.
PRINTS. Superb quality, limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle paper, 310gm, are available for same size 35 euros and A4 20 euros.They can be purchased direct from me.
