George’s Postcard Note: Finally, the Alcazar – what a setting for a caliph! Herded in with 200 others and not sure when we’d be shooed along and out, I didn’t set up to paint until we were near the end of the tour. Anyway, we wanted to rest our feet! This cool and shady courtyard – how many courtyards are there anyway? – served more as a residential than ceremonial space, calm, private, peaceful. The last slanting rays of the sun brought out the pinks and oranges – and the “fauve” in me!
