Shored Up is a bright and jaunty original collage-painting, loosely based on one of the fishing boats in Koroni harbour. Drawn freehand on tissue paper, with lots of Greek text making up the background, this painting tells a colourful seaside story of a typical Greek harbour scene.
The background of this cheerful mixed-media collage painting was made from layers of cut and torn papers – many with Greek text. The foreground drawing was done freehand on acid-free tissue paper and the whole scene was painted with artists’ quality acrylic paints.
Shored Up was created on a nice, slimline canvas, with a depth of 2cm. The collage and painting continues around the side of the canvas.
