View of Antalya

I'm lucky enough to have a son and daughter-in-law who were lucky enough to have been able to vacation last year in the resort town of Antalya, Turkey on the north shore of the Mediterranean Sea. I painted this from one of the photos they sent me from their trip. I used their photo because I liked the way the morning light was just beginning to rake down across the hillside.
Well, that, and I thought "this might be as close to Turkey as I'll ever get."

I changed it up a bit to improve the composition a little and to eliminate the lounge chairs that were lined up on a deck that was carved into the stone down at the bottom of the hillside, just above the water. I thought they spoiled the natural beauty of this view. So you can see, I'm finally remembering .... "Don't be a slave to the photo!"
