Xaghra Square

Xaghra Square

You make it look so easy Thalia. Great work.

Lovely Thalia good to see I am not alone in my early morning painting.

Lovely quiet atmosphere you have caught on a small painting. Not sure it needs people.

Love your style of painting Thalia. It’s so effective in capturing the moment.

How do you paint so small Thalia? Very beautiful and love the out of focus look which accentuates the heat emanating from your painting.

Thank you, Jim and Barry...have to be early to beat the heat here! Thanks, John, it does have vague figures as they wandered across the Square, thanks, Christine, and Carole, it was done very fast, as the sun was beginning to burn me. Yup, out of focus because it was still taking what seemed like ages to dry, due to the humidity! as to the size, I cut paper to the size, it's too hot to do anything too complicated plein air at the moment! Cheating, but there you go!

Thank you very much, Maureen!

Like the ‘simple’ way you have painted this Thalia.

Hang on Studio Wall

Tiny 13x9cm plein air study in Xaghra [Shara] Square very early morning to avoid the intense heat. Problem was...no one yet having their coffee! Just caught one or two figures crossing the square with their bread and newspapers!
