David Meldrum urban sketching Watercolour

Last minute

I jumped on a last minute flight to Palma de Mallorca yesterday. I tried to paint the bright pink and mostly drunk lobsters on the beach. It didn’t inspire me. Maybe it will tomorrow, trying hard to adjust to the heat (29). Actually, tomorrow I’ll head into Palma, I’m staying in a charter-hotel in Arenal. It’s fun, I feel very lucky to be able to do this kinda thing.

Yes, you are a lucky boy, Palma is a very nice place with a nice weather 29 or even more, but El arenal is not the best place to stay in Palma try to visit Alcudia or the north part of the island, it´s got an incredible landscapes with the pines next to the sea , and obviously less busy. I like your sketch, you´ve get used very quickly to paint in hot weather, it dries very soon.

I used to come to Mallorca during the 1990s to make TV commercials, Palma pictures . That was 20 years ago, I’ve always liked Mallorca. Yes, Arenal is a tourist getto but the trip was cheap and I take the bus each day into Palma. I once stayed in Port de Pollença, it was very nice there. Travelled along the north coast, also very beautiful.
