Vis Map 1

Today we’re going to Vis, a small Croatian Island in the Adriatic Sea. This is a Christmas gift for the son of a long time collector. Erik loves the ocean and this beautiful island. We’ve traveled in this area so this collaboration brings back warm memories for Jack and me. I’ve selected Stiniva Beach on the southern side of the island as my background. The red arrow highlights the location on the map. You can click on the image to enlarge the picture.

Here’s a picture of Stiniva Beach. Isn’t it pretty?

Sketch Terry Pollio - 2

Terry and I decided it would be fun to be standing on the terrace of a villa looking out at the distinctive bluffs and crystal clear water below. I’ve done a sketch to solidify our ideas.

Starting on the canvas I sketch my plan with a thin oil wash made of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.
