A Painting A Week No 126 – Fishing Boat, Koroni Harbour


For Sale – 25th June 2013 – SOLD

Not a very exciting title for a painting, but I seem to have Greek fishing boats everywhere I look right now, as well as in Koroni harbour and the bay below us. I’ve been painting them, sketching them, and sticking them onto collages. Each little waterside village around here has its unique selection of boats, and yes, most of them really do go out fishing each day, or night, and keep all the local restaurants full of seafood. I just love the shape of them, all the accoutrement hanging off them, not to forget all the little ‘sticky uppy bits’ (which I’ve recently told my students not to ignore!)

Summer has arrived with a vengance now – too hot for sitting on the edge of harbours sketching, but perfect for relaxing in any one of Koroni’s many cafes with an ice cold frappe, or an ouzo in your hand!

Venezia, Italy


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

This collage was created from of a series of my sketches from Venice, blended with bits of Italian newspaper, various mediums and mixed media. It’s interesting loosely sketching the little gondolas – one wrong move, and its all over!
