Olive tree Painting; farinelli restaurant marbella

I do like the taste of Olives with a cold Spanish beer so it was a double pleasure to be asked to put four of my Olive tree works on the restaurant walls and afterwards have a relax in the inviting bar with a cerveza and a bowl of olives.

Driss the restaurants french owner explained to me that the idea of good art and good food was developed in his cafe in Dubai and looked forward to developing the same successful creative mix for the people of Marbella.

Sotogrande Seascape

I have been working in my sketch book on one of the more craggy parts off the Costa Del Sol with views that look beyond Sotogrande towards and onwards to British Gibraltar. Everyday this week we have had strong winds from the north and I can almost smell the snows carried on them. The wind was so strong that it flattened the seas surface and sent it scurrying away in white stripes under a silver sky. A silver sea under silver clouds. Today the wind veered south east and blew even stronger. The swells grew until white surf broke in ranks. The temperature is warmer now though the wind still has its chill. There is a dark metalled blue strip on the far horizon and further in shore the sea normally a blue colour is now the colour of green jade.

Portugal Cabo Sillerio Painting Mixed Media


Watercolour Ink and Pastel on paper, a short walk from the car, below the wheeling gulls; a fresh cool wind and slight warmth from the sun. Houses cling like limpets onto the rocky shoreline at Cabo Sillerio.

The Ocean meets Portugal Cabo Silleiro




This coast is a wild coast; the crashing of the Atlantic swell sweeping from the stormy Bay of Biscay onto the rocks of the headlands at Cabo Sillerio.






The meeting of a large liquid which has travelled 1000's of miles onto a solid object causes a shattering and a loud explosion. Cabo Silleiro

The Road to the Atlantic Ocean Portugal.

Working with watercolour on paper along with anything that I can find in my travelling kit. After a long and dusty drive through the cold of the Portuguese Sierra in Winter suddenly the Ocean appears through the trees.

Portugal



Portugese shepherds working with their flocks on the Algarve. What struck me was their use of any materials to build a shelter from the sun, and the way the sun has bleached colour of the metals sheets and timbers used.
