Dolphin Villa


Dolphin Villa – Giclee Print

This is one of a series of paintings which I completed following an activity holiday in Poros, Greece. The image was painted from a photograph taken on a day when I was learning to sail – it didn’t go well – my sailing skills need a lot of work! The villa is at Krangelo just outside Galatas and it is said that the house was once the property of the founder of a well known airline. Brian, an amazing Scot who runs the wonderful activity holidays, told me that he had seen a large dolphin just off the small beach below the villa several times – so he has renamed it ‘Dolphin Villa’.

The large villa dominated the shoreline. The cyprus trees in the foreground  wind their way up the hillside, appearing ever smaller as they fade into the distance. The hills are quite barren, dotted with small bushes. The colour palette is warm with a turquoise sea, the colour of which is reflected in the windows. The red roofs of the houses are typical of the Mediterranean – as are the isolated little clouds drifting by.

This high quality giclee print is mounted and will fit a standard readymade frame.

I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style of painting with acrylics so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county, surrounded by the sea with so many inland waterways - truly inspirational.
