Interpretation No. 13 – Ibiza Town
Busy times are upon us in the Spring-awakened island of Mallorca, and with the high season just around the corner, all of the businesses across the Balearics are preparing for the onslaught of tourists in their thousands. For The Daily Norm that means something of a quieter pace of life, as my creativity is diverted and energies exhausted on the multiple requirements of work. Nonetheless, I have happily retained the odd hour for a little personal engagement in private creations, and next off the easel is the 13th gouache in my collection of “interpretations” – landscapes reinterpreted with a simpler finish and flattened matt colours.
I started this little landscape as soon as I came home from the island of Ibiza. My first time on the island left me much enamoured, despite the fact that in low season it was worse than deserted, not least in the historical old town from which this view originates.

Beautiful, Eivissa is one of my favorite places on earth…..I love going because it has so many options based on how you wake up that day….company or solitude can be easily arranged!
I only explored the island on one winter weekend, and I am desperate to go when it is warm and balmy and those options are even greater – I can’t wait to explore the island further! Many thanks for the kind comment!
You are going to love it….I wish I could go this year, but next year absolutely! But I will tell you, locals love it in winter, summer and balmy weather bring truckloads of tourists. But it is still amazing! Enjoy!!!
Your gouache work is a favorite of mine… this one is great. One day I will be able to have one odf them at home… one day.
One day soon I hope! I would be honoured to have one of my gouaches hanging in your home 🙂
Wonderful. J x
