Watercolor of the day ~ Men of Malta Lore

Men of Malta Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

This is a study I once did, based on a photo from National Geographic, of a street scene on the island of Malta (presumably the place where they make Maltese Falcons). A group of men are gathered in the shade along an old stone wall, watching a game of bocce in the road. It’s an impressionistic take, but I hope I captured the spirit of these five spectators and their afternoon siesta.

Title: Men of Malta Lore
Painted: May 1989
Media: Watercolors on paper
