Monastiraki Athens


Landscape Watercolour of Athens, 15" x 11".

Monastiraki was the site of one of the largest monasteries in Athens.  So little was left of the complex -  and only this little church remains, hence it's name 'monastiraki' or 'little monastery'.  The area around the square here has many tourist souvenir shops and traditional Greek Kebap Restaurants.  I very rarely go back to paintings to rework them, but the yellow taxi was an afterthought (there were tow many plain cars, so I washed over one with a Cad Yellow bit of paint).

On Saunders Waterford Rough Paper, 140 lbs.
