Small oil studies like the ones below played an important role in the formulation of this trip. A visit to Ibiza and Formentera sparked a stream of these paintings, making up part of an exhibition at The Rountree Tryon Gallery in London. Since then I've been keen to get back out and explore the islands further.
The plan is to travel with my portable pochade box that neatly holds 10x14" boards and all the basic essentials for oil painting. I expect most work will be done firmly on dry land but working on the boat might be possible in calm anchorages. The hardest part will be keeping paint off the polished gelcoat and upholstery.
