2014 – The Mediterranean

I saw the Mediterranean Sea for the first time on my trip to Marseille in the south of France. I found the sea very different from the greyish/greenish one I am used to seeing in my native Ghana. This sea is a solid, deep blue.

In this painting I depict buildings on the island of Santorini in Greece. The closest I have ever been to Greece is the Parc Asterix reconstruction of the place. It was there that I first noticed how the Greeks combined pure white with a touch of their Mediterranean blue to their architecture. Hopefully one day I will finally visit Greece.

This painting is done with painting knives to give it a smooth surface.
