Southern Coast

The last days of November... If I had stayed in my country, I probably would have warmed myself with a glass of hot spiced wine at the Christmas market, but here, the sunny weather invited us to walk up the Sierra Blanca near Marbella and to enjoy the panoramic views on the town and the sea (we could even distinguish Gibraltar!) I picked some fresh rosemary, observed some mountain goats, asking myself why those animals have got so little place left to live because of us humans.

Great day. Rough sea.

Another great day here, but the sea is a bit rough. It is November, after all... 
I should begin to make plans for the end of the year and all that, but this year, things are different. I am not sure it would make sense.

Lesbos (so many life jackets...)

El Puerto by night

Arriving in El Puerto de Santa María at twilight gives me the time to look at the historic centre from the new bridge. Everything becomes dark very quickly, but I like to listen at the splashing waters of Guadalete River. All is right with the world from here, no unemployment, no poverty, no refugees perishing by drowning in Lesbos and Chios, no corruption in Spain, Germany and elsewhere, no war, no arm deals. I wish I could stay here longer, just listening at the waves, greeting the last fisherman returning home.

View from the terrace

I had a lot of other work those last days, with little time to draw and paint. So just a small coloured sketch showing you the view from my terrace.
