Mountain Village, La Alpujarra,... by Bob Maddox

Mountain Village, La Alpujarra, Andalucia.

Pastel on paper.
This is Castaras, a remote mountain village in La Alpujarra, Andalucia where I am lucky enough to live.

Who would have guessed that adding those pinks and blues would bring in so much emotion?

Artist Statement
for Bob Maddox
Bob MaddoxHello out there!
I started painting in 2005 after moving from England to Spain with Belinda. After wasting vast quantities of watercolours, acrylics and oils, I eventually discovered soft pastels. Deep Joy!
Most of my work is taken from the landscape, villages and people of the Alpujarra - a remote and stunningly beautiful region of Andalucia, Spain. We lived for 8 years in Yegen, a small mountain village set on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
My friend here is Chico...a Supermule.
Since returning to the UK, I'm now on the look-out for the startling and unusual in our own landscape.
Keep painting and bring a little more beauty into this frantic world. God bless all.

In nature it is sometimes difficult to see an animal because of color.Do you find it acceptable to enhance the colors for visibility sake?
A delightful piece of art......I think as an artist you make up your own mind for what is acceptable......developing an image is sheer delight when you feel it... view answer
