I loved working on this painting as we spend the first full winter in Greece for many years. Lockdown has kept us close to home, but how lucky are we to have a gorgeous long beach right on the doorstep. I’ve wandered along it in many weathers, and the ocean is often ominous and crashing. This painting though, portrays it somewhere in between that and the usual glorious calm blue it usually is during summer.
This painting has had many iterations, but my desire was to convey blue water and islands, perhaps resting points, somewhere in the world.
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!

It’s always tricky to interpret an abstract idea. To me this has the suggestion of water with rocks and distant hills. But you may well see something completely different!
