Finished yesterday, I think this painting represents for me a search through memories of holidays past at a time when another trip abroad seems far off.
The view is based on a photograph I took in Alcudia on the island of Majorcain September 2008. The weather was a bit mixed and Alcudia is not at all colourful, but as always, I enjoyed my time abroad, so as the painting developed, my memory and imagination heightened the colour.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a professional artist working in oil, acrylic and drawing. I'm still very much a figurative painter aiming at some kind of modern representation. I believe in the continuing value of painting and follow in its long and honourable tradition.
