Kassiopi paintings

"Blue 7" (Sonny Rollins) 
 A couple of new paintings produced from sketches on my recent visit to Kassiopi on Corfu, the titles are from the vivid colours of the island and the jazz music which also inspired them with the musicians credited.
"Kind of Blue" (Miles Davis)

Corfu Spring

Another visit to Corfu, this time staying in the small town of Kassiopi in the North East of the island.

  I met the artist Richard Hewlett who had appeared in a TV documentary about people living on the island. We got into conversation and he kindly invited me to his studio in the hills behind Kassiopi, but unfortunately not having a car I had to decline. So maybe next time!
You can see some of his work at his website

From sketches that I made I'll continue with my "Blue" series of paintings, inspired by the clear skies and turquoise sea.
