The coast at Los Escullos

Los Escullos looking towards La Isleta

Semana Santa has been sunny but the temperatures have been tempered by a persistent wind, El Poniente, which blows from the west.

The coast at Los Escullos

Today, Domingo de Resurrección, the wind finally dropped and the fabulous coastline of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata looked its best.

Another view at Los Escullos

We went to Los Escullos in the morning to walk along the cliff path towards San Jose.

Towards the beaches

We encountered other walkers and cyclists taking their morning exercise, and the beaches of the Cabo de Gata looked as if they were going to be busy.

From the cliffs

The wonderful light and colours of the sea and rocks were complemented by the abundance of spring wild flowers growing along the cliffs and shore.

Please visit my exhibition of paintings in Las Negras. It runs until 25th May


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.
