Finding hidden gems in Palma

Painting of a court yard in Palma
Painting of a court yard in Palma 31 x 41 cm

I’ve been walking around the streets of Palma de Mallorca. I’m starting to find my way around the old narrow streets in the shopping districts. This court yard I found down a quiet side street away from all the tourists. It was a pleasure to paint, it was so tranquil.

My name is David Meldrum. I am an Artist who loves watercolour.


  1. Peaceful place and placeful watercolor. You lucky boy find beatiful places to paint wherever you go, nice negative painting, but I find quite opaque greens, or maybe a touch of gouche?. A very relaxing one.

  2. You have the eyes of an eagle! Yes, I used some gouache 😉
    I was most unhappy with the plants at the base of pot, too fussy.
    Otherwise, I liked my interpretation of what was in front of me.
