‘Hydra - Hillside with Windmill’ 8 x 8 in  /  20 x 20 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2011 £140
Looking at past images of Hydra it is clear there were many more windmills than there are today, built on top of the line of hills which dominate the harbour. The few that remain are very significant visually, with no practical purpose except, beautifully restored, as domestic conversions. They are in many cases painted white and provide a delightful contrast to the rectangular buildings of the town and the heavy green of the foliage.
