Cyprus rocks

In the centre of Cyprus is a high plateau, I think pushed up by tectonic activity as North Africa pushes hard against Europe. It is cool even when the lowlands are hot and covered mainly in conifers.  The rocks are eroded into steps and falls.

This painting was done in October after I’d walked these mountains.  This was done mainly in acrylic ink with a bit of watercolour added at the end.

While I continue to post archived paintings, I’m trying to paint a watercolour of the North Kent marsh using limited colour saturation and transparent media to depict the pale sky and reflections on the mud flats.  It is proving difficult and I’m on version 3 tomorrow.  Its the planning that takes time, the actual painting is quick.
