Whispers in the Olive Grove

These three 30 x 30cm paintings on deep canvas were a slightly new and more subdued direction for me. Here in Koroni, which is just beyond the Kalamata valley, we live surrounded by olive groves. The colours and light in these groves change constantly and are particularly beautiful with a light breeze ruffling the leaves, giving you glimpses of various muted colours, sometimes even purples!

Morning Calm, Koroni

Photos taken in the mornings of the lovely harbour in Koroni usually capture the beautifully calm waters of the bay, stretching across to the Mani Peninsula in the distance.  It’s not necessarily so calm later in the day!

Waving in the Breeze

As the weather gets hotter, these wonderful plants start flowering everywhere in Greece. They thrive in the hot dry summers, and there are swathes of them everywhere along the sides of the roads and up in the hills. They sway majestically in the wind and are often adorned with an insect of some sort sitting right in the middle of the huge flower!  I know them as Queen Anne’s Lace but I believe they’re also known as ‘Wild Carrot’.

Skopelos Highlights

I painted this little painting in Skiathos, after spending time on Skopelos. So many little while buildings, and so many laneways to explore.  This view of Skopelos is looking across from the ferry terminal!

Back from Fishing, Skopelos

Another small painting done whilst staying in Skiathos in July. The photo reference was taken in the neighbouring island of Skopelos. It’s so good to see these traditional fishing boats still have a place in a harbour full of yachts.
