The Mediterranean region is known for its breathtaking landscapes, vibrant colours, and picturesque coastal views. The combination of clear blue waters, sandy beaches, charming villages, and vibrant flora can be visually captivating and aesthetically pleasing. My choice to paint Mediterranean scenes, is to be drawn to the beauty and allure of these landscapes and seascapes, and i wanted to capture that beauty on canvas.
The Mediterranean region holds significant cultural and historical importance. It has been my birthplace and also the of ancient civilizations, witnessed the rise and fall of empires, and has a rich heritage of art, architecture, and mythology. Painting Mediterranean scenes allows me to explore and celebrate this cultural legacy, depicting iconic landmarks, traditional architecture, and historical references that evoke a sense of nostalgia and connection to the past.
The Mediterranean region often evokes a sense of tranquility, serenity, and relaxation. The warm climate, gentle breezes, and laid-back lifestyle can create a peaceful and soothing ambiance. By choosing to paint Mediterranean scenes, I may be seeking to evoke those positive emotions within myself and the viewers. The scenes I painted can serve as a source of inspiration, escapism, or a reminder of the simple pleasures of life.
