I thought I would divide the blog into sections that cover particular locations. The scenery with the most 'pull' for me was the sea and islands off the North side of the town. The Port Fort (Skala de Port) has such an irresitible shape that it crept into many of the oil sketches.
I think this was the first one I did, from under the Medina wall:

As the sun moves round in the morning the whole scene becomes contre jour :
I was drawn back several times to this view or one looking more towards the island fort:
|Port Fort Contre Jour (7x9)|
|Midday Under The Medina Wall (10x8)|
