Trujillo Cathedral, Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

Trujillo Cathedral (watercolor 10 x 22) Available

This is the cathedral in Trujillo, Spain, also known as “Our Lady of Peace.”  I’ve painted her from the side, as a neighbor might walk to her.  But she presides over Trujillo’s Plaza Mayor.

Setenil Fortress

Setinel Fortress, Original Painting of Pueblos Blancos by Jenny Armitage

Setenil Fortress (watercolor 15 x 24) Available

Setenil de los Bodegas of Cadiz Province, Spain is one of the more interesting pueblos blancos of Andulacia.  Unlike most pueblos blancos it occupies either ridge of a valley rather than a hilltop.  Many of the houses are semi-troglodyte, occupying shallow caves in the valley walls.  One street includes a natural tunnel.

The view in this painting is from our apartment porch in Setenil looking across at the old castile.
