Alpujarra Landscape

La Alpujarra in Watercolour

An artist’s Alpujarra diary…

Lyanne and Hugh Mitchell (from Clarkston in Glasgow) were guests of ours in Canar in April 2011. During the course of their week, I was never more glad to get a text message asking for a hand connecting a gas bottle at El Tinao – over coffee and a chat, Lyanne brought out her watercolour diary of sketches that she’d completed up to that day. It is truly a privilege to present a selection of her work here; indeed, it only took a moment to decide to devote a separate page to show it off.

So, for all our previous guests and visitors to La Alpujarra, I hope Lyanne’s paintings bring back happy memories of some familiar views, and to future visitors, I hope they provide as inspiring a glimpse of life in La Alpujarra as they have for us. I couldn’t be more grateful for Lyanne’s kind permission to display her work, thereby enhancing our website immeasurably.
