JILL MIRZA ‘Café Life on Hydra Waterfront’ 18 x 22 in  /  71 x 71 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2015
Like a theatre set this image across the water is seen flat on – the figures in the cafes  appear as characters on stage. The brilliant sun creates strong, vivid shadows and the  reflections in the water are disturbed and broken up, appearing as splashes of colour.  The buildings dominate the scene, the white walls, orange roofs and dark windows  uncompromising and bold. A complementary colour balance of orange and blue  dominates.
