Naxos (Oil on canvas; 20 x 20 ins.)
I was a bit pushed for time today and couldn't find my source material for a new painting to start at the Art Club. This is becoming something of a regular occurrence and must be Attended To.
Anyway, I decided to finish off another picture which has been lying around for almost a year. This is how it looked when I started today.
Naxos (interim stage)
You can see it didn't need much more to get it to stand up and talk for itself and I think I'm just about done with it.
I like the island of Naxos a lot. I must have been there something like half a dozen times and always find the gloomy passageways of the old town, the Kastro, fascinating. The buildings are mostly Venetian, of course, and probably sowed the seeds of my passion for Venice itself.
