Comino Tower view from Comino Hospital, Comino, Malta - Jun 2007 - watercolour on paper - 50 x 35 cms (unframed). Painted on site on the island of Comino, Malta; it was a terribly hot day, and we sat with some other artists in the shade of the ex-Comino Hospital courtyard. This is a couple of hundred metres from the Tower itself, but the summer haze was enough to send the tower way back into the background. I like the way the light falls on the tower, with vertical slivers of light on it. The foreground was as Arizona dry and the higher contrast there brings the foreground closer. Done for the day, I then went swimming :)
Andrew Borg is a Malta-based painter, working in oils and watercolour. He captures images which, to my mind, look good or have are quirky enough to have a below-the-paint meaning.
