In northeastern Spain, close to France on a remote spit of land lies the Cap de Creus lighthouse. I first visited it with my Catalan buddy Beth just this time last year. The day was remarkably clear, just a little wind – which is astounding as this outpost gets hammered by the fierce Tramontana winds on a regular basis.
This painting was started onsite in pencil – Done in pen & ink, watercolor added later – (in a much warmer place!)
The winds are so brutal here in this region, the even have names for them –
