Spending time in Greece and Turkey, painting on the island of Rhodes, in the little village in the south east of the city of Rhodes.⁠
Encountering for the first time ‘the Aegean and Mediterranean Light’. the special light, the ubiquitous blue haze of the surrounding sea drenches the shadows and reflects onto the bleached whites of clothing and whitewashed houses. This aspect and the signs of a village life working with the flow of the natural world and age old knowledge and customs handed down offer centuries became the aim of a painting style I would take away from this experience with such effects as patinas , distressed renders and of course ‘blue haze’.
