This colourful house is in Koroni, on the top of the hill. It actually sits snugly side by side neighbouring houses but for this sketch I wanted to give it more space, so used a little creative licence, making it a bit more detached than it really is! The plethora of Greek flags, plants, pots and decorative items and the abundant use if blue and white are true to life though. This painting was created using fluid acrylics, ink and a little wax from a church candle.

Quintessentially Greek… whitewashed walls, blue pots, red geraniums and an old electricity meter! This was drawn on-location in Vasilitsi in southern Messinia, but it could equally have been a scene found in the Greek islands.
