JILL MIRZA ‘The Yellow Taverna’ 24 x 24 in  /  61 x 61 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2012
The vivid colours, strong light and vibrant shadows found in this quiet corner of  Greece are the inspiration for an image encapsulating a sense of stillness and lack of  sophistication. The picture balances the use of colours that are almost complimentary,  blue and near orange yellow, with neutrals that have their own energy and life. The  strong tonal contrasts create structure within the image.
