Santorini Cliff Hangers
Phew this one almost had me beat!
I began it as with the others of this series, layers of overlapping images on my IPad, then transfered the result to a 30 x 40" canvas.
I have changed this many times on my IPad, even during the process of painting.
Colors, angles, and many ideas were thrown to the winds, before I finally think I am satisfied.
While on Santorini a few months back I took off on my own to take photos, and discovered a cliff with beautiful homes on it, a winding path led me right around the cliffs, to get me back into town.
I was hot, but very happy I took the effort to do this, the height and magnificence of this view was spectacular!
After that as some of you know, I went to the bottom of said cliffs via chair lift and rode a donkey back up again. These are the neverending stairs I rode my poor animal, onwards and upwards.
This painting is a complation of the many scenes I discovered on this very hot and dare I say, smelly (donkey) journey :))
This is a 30 x 40" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas.
