Santorini - Acrylic on Canvas.

For me this is about keeping my word. I did rekindle an old habit at the turn of New Year this year. Now, 6 months and 2 exams later, I finally managed to finish this painting. 

Santorini is an island off the mainland of Greece. This picture is iconic. I set about doing this painting because of its striking colours - brilliant blue and white. I thought it would be simple, just blue and white, right? But it became an arduous task trying to get all 50 shades of white correct! Then came a moment when the technique crystallized and from then on, it was rather smooth sailing. Added a few details for the roving eye to pick up.

And thus was completed my first painting in 8 years!
