Lindos by takmaj Lindos by takmaj
This is the watercolor from Lindos, Rhodes, Greece that I painted on the set in this beautiful town while visiting family in Greece. It was extremety hot to sit there and paint and I burnt my back very badly while painting it, but I think it was worth it, cause I like this painting. Hope you like it too! Also you can check out my :heart: husband Zawij 's version of this place

watercolor on paper, and dry pastels,  42x56cm
hope you like it a little bit :*

The peculiar white structures, though scattered, get a uniformed feeling due to correctly used shadows and depths. They get uplifted rather well. Good work!

Greece, specifically Santorini is on my visit list within the next year to three years.  Something about these Cliffside/hill top towns in Greece just sucks me in.  I am so drawn to them.  Even without your description as to exactly where this was, your representation of everything I've ever seen of Greece is spot on.  I knew exactly what I was looking at.  Fantastically done.  I love this.

Very structural use of water color, I like it!

I like the direction of the composition as well, I think the power lines add some nice, uphill movement.

I'd say the sunburn you endured was well worth it.

It's a very beautiful painting. I loved your husband's version too. I guess, yours is a "sunnier" version of the same place :) Both are indeed lovely and worth to be praised ;-) By the way, I hope your back is well now :D

I've been going through our "hands that don't want to hold brushes or palettes" game; so I can only paint about four hours a day, when the rest of life behaves itself. When I have been painting this is the monster I've been working on. Oops - 2016-08-11 canvas on easel - WIP by keight
