I love to paint the land and the sea, especially if I can be outside in the elements and with nature. However there is another side to my creative work which gives me freedom to just apply paint, texture and colour without any thought for the outcome or with any ego attached to the potential saleability of my work. This 5 minute film shows the development of a large piece created over 5 days. It took many changes along the way and the finished piece hangs in the yoga shala at Cortijo Las Salinas. Hope you enjoy the film and, as always, love to hear your feedback.
Up until yesterday we had discovered nine species of orchid, however the most illusive, the Lizard Orchid, was still to be found. Today, during a trip into the mountains, we can add two more orchids to the list – one of them being the ‘Lizard’. Not seen at its best as this giant Lizard orchid was just going over, however I now know where to find them next year – and in abundance. The secret, to go a bit higher, maybe around 1000 meters above sea level. A very small delicate pink orchid can also be added to the list, which I have discovered is called the Pyramid Orchid. There is still an orchid which remains unidentified, so if anyone knows the name of the last ones in this album, please feel free to enlighten me.
