Snow above the Barrio Alto, Trevélez. Watercolour/Gouache

After a heavy snowfall a couple of days ago the snowline has retreated above the Barrio Alto. The low sun gives interesting shadows at this time of year.

Plein Air Pastel

A plein air pastel painted on Terracotta Colourfix Primer. Looking West up the barranco El Chorrillo, Trevelez. A large white rock in the centre of the painting, glistens in the sunshine and I hear the laughing call of the green woodpecker somewhere above me.

Plein Air Sketch - Barrio Medio Trevelez

Now the snow has retreated above the village I braved the cold air to do this watercolour/graphite sketch of the Barrio Medio as seen from my roof. The sun was quite warm so I managed to stay for a couple of hours before retreating down to warm up by the wood stove.
