Sunny Days

I have painted this scene from one of my holiday snaps of Rhodes. I quite like canopies and umbrellas, they make good contrast and create a splash of colour.

I love the way you seem to be able to imply people, with not a wasted brushstroke in the whole crowd. Are those Tilley hats I see? Nice to think there were some Canadians in Rhodes that day.

Lovely as always!!

Mineke Reinders said...

Your work is very fresh and immediate. It reminds me a little of John Yardley, but you have your own style, of course. I'll be following your blog too, looking forward to the next painting.

I like the placement of the yellow shirts and the minimal white-clad figure. Your composition is excellent as always.

Another 'home run' Trevor. (wooops...you may not have that phrase in the UK).
It's smashing! Love the high contrast of sparkling light and cool fluid shadows.
