Sunset – Ksamil Islands, Albania

Derek Alvarez, Sunset – Ksamil Islands, Albania, Hand Painted on the iPad using Procreate, 2018

I haven’t been to every beach in the world, obviously, but I have been to Hawaii, Greece, Montenegro, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Southern California… and the beach in Ksamil, Albania is my favorite. Many people think I’m crazy when I say that, but the scenery is so picturesque, the water is very tranquil and warm, and I love the islands that you can swim or take a pedal-boat to. The sunsets are also amazing and this painting captures the sun peeking behind one of the islands right before it goes down for the night. (The most distant island in the background of this painting is Corfu, Greece.)
