Greek Boats, Methoni

GR-31_GreekBoats-Methoni

Details of this painting can be found in Gallery – Greece.

There is a lovely old ruined Venetian fort in the town of Methoni, not far from us here. On one side of the slightly dilapidated walls there is the crashing sea, usually fairly wild as its the west coast of the Peloponnese, and on the other side is a calm bay, perfect for swimming, and for all the locals to use as a harbour.  I love the colour and shapes of all the different boats, tied up along the harbour walls. Although these can’t technically be described as Greek fishing boats, I bet that’s what they are!
