    Another painting inspired by BBC TV Great Continental Railway Journeys. This time Michael Portillo was in Southern Spain and visited Ronda, Seville and Cordoba. This bridge in Ronda really made me want to paint it P1040754-Edit

    I painted this on 60 years old paper which I bought from The Vintage Paper Company. It comes from a long-closed paper mill in Somerset, England. The paper is made from cotton rag and feels very different to modern papers. It has has a wonderful, fibrous texture which helps give deep granulation of the paints. The little house, Prospect Cottage, was owned by the film director Derek\'s Jarman before he died in 1994. It has featured in many articles in magazines and newspapers. I have not done justice to the garden with its many small sculptures and artfully - arranged coastal debris. I want to just mention (does anyone read this far?) the Daniel Smith colour Lunar Black which I read about in Will Freeborn \'s book How to Paint in Watercolour in 50 Small Paintings (a really good book for beginners and experienced painters). The paint contains iron pigment and granulates beautifully. Watercolourists don\'t usually use black paint but I make an exception for this one. 20171013-P1040440
