Sun, light, blue, white
I’m having a hard time deciding what to paint from my recent trip, so sketching out images has been a stressless way to play around with composition and color on a small scale. Not worrying too much about details either—in fact, I went right to paint with this one, without any drawing.
During the four hour stop in Mykonos, I was well aware that I was probably having a true tourist experience in the Times Square of Mykonos. Nevertheless, practically every structure is white, with touches of blue in church domes, doorways, trim. There’s a lack of straight lines, true angles and hard edges to the numerous Greek Orthodox chapels that dot the area. This image shows three chapels right on top of each other, each appearing like white sandcastles against the brilliant cobalt blue sky.
