‘Waterfront Cafés, Hydra’ 15¾ x 15¾ in  /  40 x 40 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2014 £540 
This image is cool and spacious, Illustrating a place waiting for the crowds to arrive. The figures grouped near the edges, in the shadow of the huge canvas awnings give a sense of scale but are incidental. The geometric shapes of the chairs and the play of the stripes on the canvas engage the eye which is led through to the distant view beyond the cafés.
