Artist's description:

Meltemi forms part of a new series of abstract paintings I am working on called 'Elemental', which explore the essence of places that I have visited and dearly love. I remember being overwhelmed by the extraordinary beauty of Greece when I first visited many years ago - the light, the colours, the scent of wild herbs in the air and beautiful shapes created by the moving water.

This painting captures the bright, golden sun, the glowing sand and the lively sea being whipped into a dance by the Meltemi winds. The painting has been simplified into colours and shapes that echo the very essence of the islands.

Professional watercolours, Schminke bronze, white acrylic ink and Two Rivers handmade paper were used create this little gem. It is signed on the back and a certificate of authenticity will be supplied with the painting.

This little painting measure 5.5" X 7.5" (with border 8.5" X 10" - see images) and is sold unmounted and unframed. It will fit a standard mount (mat) with an aperture of 5" X 7", and in turn will fit a standard frame. It has a generous border, which can be trimmed as required. Alternatively a professional framer could be used.

Every effort has been made to reproduce the colours, but individual monitor settings can cause variations.

Materials used:

Professional watercolours, Schminke bronze, white acrylic ink and Two Rivers handmade paper.
