The island of Santorini
Oia is located on the greek island of Santorini. The early morning sunrise reflects the beautiful warm colors of the aegean sea. Oia is a scenic village on the north west edge of the Santorini island. It extends for almost 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) along the northern edge of the caldera that forms the island of Santorini. The village is located at a height of between 70 and 100 metres (230 and 330 ft) above sea level. Oia is built on the steep slope of the caldera. Houses and restaurants are built nicely into niches carved into the rocks. And most of all Santorini is a “in” place for honeymooners. So for newly weds there is no better place to go to. Because on this greek island you find everything for happiness! A deep blue sea, wonderful sunsets, delicious greek food and charming white hotels built into the rocks.
Sunrises and Sunsets over Oia
In Oia on Santorini there are narrow passageways and a central square. The sun light hours in this village are extremly long. Therefore Santorini is famous for it’s sunrises and sunsets. The idyllic villages have a complex of white washed, blue domed churches and charming, traditional Cycladic houses. You will love the cave houses that are carved into the rock face on top of the cliff. Oia is set in a location which provides excellent views of the sunset over the caldera.
My Artistic Approach
I do chose a semi-abstract approach for my watercolor paintings. Therefore I change the local color to powerful tones and shades of atmospheric light. So the painting depicts a dreamy world of wonderful holidays. Also see my other Posts with paintings from Europe Provence France – Old Village of Gordes and Italy – Pai Sopra on Lake Garda.
