Last Year in Lisbon
Acrylic on paper.
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, semi-abstract style, I paint these in deep blues, deep greens, red and peach tones, terra-cotta roofs, against white. The painting is acrylic on paper.
