This is me, painting in a small stand of pine trees next to the school playground of the mountain village of Argenos, Lesvos. The view was spectacular and best of all, under the umbrella and pine trees, it was comfortable. There was a nice breeze blowing, and I quite enjoyed this morning painting.
The light is what I paint, but the sun is also my enemy, as it rises in the sky and heats the air to a very uncomfortable degree. As you can see from the photos, I’m dressed to protect myself from the sun, as much as possible. I won’t make it into Vogue :), but at least I’m protecting my skin as much as possible. Even so, by now, I’m quite tanned.
