‘Hydra Headland with Windmills’ by Jill Mirza
This is a favourite and familiar view from a high terrace across to the opposite headland on the Greek island of Hydra. As I was painting it I felt I was following different paths, rediscovering the landscape. Set against a brilliant sea, the Spring foliage and strong tonal contrast emphasise the strength of the light. There is a puzzling arrangement of walls and enclosed spaces and an odd scale to the buildings, small down by the sea, large as you climb the hill.
