"Mani Tower houses"

A4 CANSON MIX MEDIA watercolour - acrylic


......a quick plein air sketch view of  Tower houses of Mani  painted from our anchorage . Once we reached the protection of a small bay I was eager to sketch  these incredible ancient ManiTower houses .... it's very challenging  painting on deck whilst anchored your view point changes continuously .

It must be very challenging to paint from a rocking boat!

Blaga ha detto...

Despite the challenges your sketch is so beautiful! You did a very good job with all these geometric shapes...

Lorraine Brown ha detto...

A stunning view to show us, would certainly be a challenge as a boat is rocking but helps keep things loose and not precious I would think

Hello Jane:) I'm so late with making a comment. I've had a little problem for a while, but I'm back to say that your painting is so lovely! At first I thought you did it on Yupo. I love the style!
