About this Painting

My wife and I travel regularly to Andalucía in southern Spain and we often visit Grenada. In 2011 we visited the Albacín, a medieval Moorish district of the city that rises on a hill offering spectacular 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 have added a suitable lamp on the table outside the shop.
