My Spanish paintings came from a family visit to the small village of Los Alcazares. We stayed in the old part by the beach. Surrounded now by developer’s apartments in their thousands Los Alcazares put me off at first. On looking through my records several years later however it was precisely this encroachment of modernity that drew my attention. I responded not just with a few beach scenes but with images of the surrounding highways and even the planes taxiing at Murcia airport at the edge of the sea.
