Just back from a few days in Sitges, not far from Barcelona. We hadn’t been there before so something of a treat. Still cold at night but during the day an agreeable 17-19 compared with our British 6 at the moment. There is nothing like winter sunshine to revive the spirit
As you can see from one of my pictures, all the ingredients for some really good paintings are there. Mediterranean sky, active sea, old churches, strong light, deep shadows with figure drawing thrown in. Some interesting side streets with iron window grilles and some strong colours should make for interesting material to work from.
I have just saved about 50 pictures so should get 2 or 3 at least, worthwhile compositions out of that lot. My next exhibition “Watercolour Wanderings” looms large. That starts on May 3rd and takes place at the Guildford Institute. That sounds a long way off but in painting terms is very close, and certainly Sitges needs to be part of my “wanderings”
Time to get started
Popular with Hippies at one time I believe. Understandable

I envy your ability to travel to these places that are so far across the ocean to me.

We are lucky in that respect. Just under two hours by plane from London to Barcelona for some extra warmth. I think we are called swallows!
I am looking forward to seeing your completed painting – it should look good.
Well it is underway, not looking like much at the moment, but hopefully will turn out ok
