July in the Algarve
Acrylic on canvas.
This original painting reflects images of Portugal from a summer vacation in 2017. The villages and towns and coasts in the Southern half of the country are covered with bright sun drenched colors. The Algarve in the Mediterranean South is what I think of when imagining Portugal. These images include fishing fleets, sardines, fado, Islamic architecture and white washed houses. Using a loose style, I paint these in deep blues, deep greens, red and peach tones, terra-cotta roofs, against white. This painting shows the white buildings, fishing boats, with a background of sand and sea. The painting is acrylic on canvas, ready to hang.
