Acrylic on canvas, 40.5 x 51 cm, 2016. SOLD Private collection, Greece.
The second of two paintings of children singing during the traditional celebrations on Greek Independence Day – 25th March. In contrast with Three Kids 1, I wanted to bring out the strength of the spring sunshine which creates harsh light and shade in an almost theatrical way. I am very fond of travel posters of the 1930s and 40s with their use of pure blocks of colour in the manner of silkscreen printing. This was the last work I completed before painting “Summer” which moves closer the the poster ideal.
