September Light and Colours



After the hazy and windy days of August we now have the calm, clear days of September. The photo above, taken Yesterday in the Valle de Rodalquilar looking towards El Playazo, shows the clear light and vibrant colours of this time of year. Also note the arid landscape. Rain during the last three months has been negligible.


Looking over the beach at San Pedro

Today we walked to San Pedro. Brilliant light and in this first view the green leaves of the banana trees add freshness and color.


The beach at San Pedro

Although it is the weekend, the beach was uncrowded compared to August.


Daisy and friend

Daisy made friends with a fox terrier, I have commented on their common ancestry on Facebook.


Colours of the sea

Here is a view looking towards the other end of the beach. We love the colours of the sea.


Cala de San Pedro

Walking back we captured this photo of Cala de San Pedro framed by a palm tree.


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.
