Artist's description:

Continuing my 'powerful places ' series of paintings. This painting draws on my memories of the colourful village of Sidi Bou Said on the Tunisian coast. It is a painters dream here in blue and white and the place where Paul Klee had the marked turning point in his use of light and colour. "Colour has taken possession of me," he wrote.

This painting incorporates my characteristic use of reflective paints. I have incorporated a range of sumptuous 'Golden' paints, to attempt to capture the shimmering light conditions. The painting comes to life under varying lighting conditions. Artificial light accentuates the reflective quality of the painting ( please see last image )

Created on a 380g high quality, deep box canvas, painted white on the sides, so you may choose not to frame. However I believe that a plain white frame would be beneficial. Initialled on the front and signed on the back and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.

Corded and ready to hang
