Lesvos is known for its sunsets. Almost every evening, there’s a spectacular sunset as the sun turns red near the horizon and the sky fills with hot colors of red, orange, pink and then finally, mauve. In Molyvos, the sun sets over the ocean. In Ayios Isidoros, it sets behind a mountain behind Plomari. After painting sunsets on the other side of the Atlantic and in a different ocean, I was curious to see what it would be like to paint them here. Other than the visceral difference of being further east, the main difference is that the sky stays bright for a much longer time here after the sun sets, so the land is lit for a longer time.
