Sacromonte and the Alhambra, Granada

Painted from the Sacromonte hill looking across to the Alhambra and down towards the modern city with the hills behind. Usually artists paint the Alhambra from the Albaicin so they can capture the backdrop of the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada. 151 more words

The Alhambra from the Albaicin, Granada

Another painting from my recent visit to Granada. The old, Moorish quarter of the Albaicin on the hill opposite the Alhambra offers endless compositions to paint and draw and I am always finding new ones on my visits to the city. 128 more words

Sacromonte, Granada

Last week I visited Granada as it would be the last opportunity to paint scenes from the City until September. It is too hot to visit Granada in July and August but also the white, hazy light of high summer is not ideal for painting. 149 more words
