Memory Paintings of Milos

Milos in the Midday
Milos at Night
I did these two paintings two days after getting back from Greece.  I had a very clear image in my head of a specific view in Milos, Greece.  It was a view I studied from our balcony for four days and attempted to commit to memory around different times of day.  Landscape painting is a theme I always struggle with because I lose interest and as a result somehow over complicate the whole thing.  However, the opportunity to paint a landscape which I felt a personal connection to and was able to work on from memory made these pieces feel satisfying in the way my still life and figurative work can feel.
