Way up in northeast Spain…near France!

Northeastern coast of Spain, nearly in France!

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 –

Rose of the Winds
