Paintings of Puerto Pollensa
 
Evertime I am in PP I am on the lookout for a painting of it to give pride of place at home. I have had to be content with black and white postcards in frames around my home. I've looked on ebay and all that comes up are old picture postcards. Is there any where out there that can grant me my wish of a picture of PP - be it a watercolour, an oil or an acrylic painting?

Paintings of PP
 
Sorry ,Colynnshep i can't think of anything at the mom. I,m sure some of the others will manage to come up with something. Nxt time you're there ask around, i'm sure some of the locals will come up with something.

Question to the board?

We have a couple of limited prints in our apartment of various scenes around PP, the Church/ the Steps in Pollensa Town, Vora Mora beach showing the old "Coach House" restaurant. They are in fine black ink, unfortunately i can't make out the artists sig. We bought them around 15 years ago around the shops in the port. As i said they were limited prints normally 150 of each. I haven't seen any of them for years, they're first class, i would expect they're hanging in apartments, more likely people took them home with them. They were quite prevelent at the time. Does anyone remember them? Or could they supply more info on the artist Etc?

Hi - I buy quite a few watercolours (unmounted) from an old boy, who is the artist, and has a pitch at Pollensa market - normally on the corner of the street at the bottom right hand corner of the square.

Also there is a little gallery on the Calvari steps which sometimes has some inexpensive LEPs.

Also the little bar in the top lefthand corner of the little square at the bottom of the Calvari steps (run by a nice English couple) had some interesting pen and ink drawings of the local area last November.

A while back, I came across a print of the coach house before Little Italy.
The author is Riumb niemri... something! Is it the same one as you have Smiddy?
Or is it a different one?

Regards

The Sea Captain :)

Hi there,
My husband and I both paint, mine are of the whacky variety and quite mad:D
The preferred optionfor you would be Daves simple seascapes -they are oil on canvas.
Price usually starts at about £50.
There would be no obligation to buy, as we sell our paintings down here in Cornwall anyway.
Please send a private message if you are interested.
Thanks.

Susie.

While on this topic about 20 years ago we were on the pine walk beach in front on the Hostel Bahia . We sat there every day with the Children. At the time a Gentleman was painting the view of the beach. when we looked at the picture as it was almost complete we noticed he had included in the picture our son who was just 2 years old at the time and spent all day running up and down the beach by the waters edge dragging his fishing net behind him and waring his white tee shirt down past his knees to keep him covered from the sun and his white hat. We so wanted the painting at that time but never got the opportunity to purchase it.
I have spent the last 20 years looking in every art shop , Car boot sale etc in PP and around in the hope I will find it.
here is a long shot if any body thinks they have seen this painting let me know I would love to purchase it.

Oil Paintings
 
I could not spot any paintings of PP but some of local areas - like Pollensa, Cala San Vicente, Cala Figuera etc. They are really lovely and capture the feel and mood of the place.

OLEOS - ACUARELAS - PAISAJES - MARINAS - RETRATOS - RUBÉN DE LUIS

I see that the painter also takes on commissions too.

Simpy75 25-03-2011 15:41

Lorenzo,
If you find any of PP please let me know as i too would like to take a painting home. If would be wonderful if we could get one from the sea/beach of Villa Lorrenzo Little Italy Katy's area.

There is a very good painter called David Mynett who exhibits at the number nine gallery in Birmingham. He is a retired barrister who has villa near Alcudia/pollenca and paints around the area and also offers courses at the villa. Look up the gallery just to look! They are not cheap but they are the best by far I have seen of the area, he does a variation in different landscapes, all good! the gallery is online by the way, google it.

PP76 16-05-2011 22:26

Pollensamoon,

The David Mynett paintings look very good, it's likely that I will be in the Birmingham area later this year and I will make a visit to the Gallery.

Thanks
