Eucalyptus trees, along with palms, pines, figs and olives are common in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. In the villages they are pruned but in the wild, like this one in a grove near La Isleta, their branches create mysterious shapes and cast interesting shadows.

The colours, patterns and textures formed by the peeling bark on their trunks can create interesting abstract images as you can see in these two photos.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

    Thank you for this interesting post. You present us some wonderful captures of the Eucalyptus! We have an Eucalyptus in the garden here in Cley next the sea, Norfolk. I think it’s about the highest tree in the area.
    Have a great day.
    Love, Dina
