Navarino is an original collage painting. The background was created from scraps of Greek text and maps which relate to the story – paper from the fresh fish shop and a map of Kalamata seafront. The background completed, I overlaid my pen & ink drawings of Greek fishing boats and their paraphernalia, and added a hand-carved and stamped fish. Some acrylic painting brought the painting together. The edges were slightly textured and the finished piece was given a coat or two of clear protective varnish.
The painting was inspired by the boaty comings and goings in the active fishing harbour of Koroni, a pretty little town in the Southern Peloponnese.
Navarino measures 15 x 21cm (6 x9″) A5 and was created on 300gsm watercolour paper.
It is available unmounted and unframed for you to mount and frame as you wish.
