La Lampareria Albacin Granada
Painting - Acrylic On Board
My wife and I are regular visitors to Andalucia in southern Spain and we often visit Grenada. In 2011 we visited the Albacin a medieval Moorish district of the city that rises on a hill offering spectactular views of the Alhambra Palace.
As we were exploring the narrow, winding streets we came across a small lamp shop with a fantastic display of coloured lanterns. I immediately knew that I had to paint it. This proved to be easier said than done but I think I have pulled it off. Although this painting took a while to paint, I suspect this was less time than it takes to make one of these beautiful lanterns.
As the shop reminded me of Aladdin's cave I added a suitable lamp on the table outside the shop.
