September 2..........El Portil
Oil on canvas 18x24 cm One of my goals this month is to paint some seascapes. This painting is from the sand dunes closest to where we live, and in the background is El Portil, a small town in southern Spain that is nearly uninhabited for all the months of the year except July and August when people come to escape the high summer temperatures. It is a bit off the beaten tourist track and mostly enjoyed by the Spanish on holiday who want it to remain a secret.
