Most of Stephanie Sampson’s watercolours were made from observation, on location, during her travels around Greece. This on-going series began in the 1990s. The watercolours are quite small, about 14×20 cm. on average, because of the nature of changing light and the properties of watercolour where its vitality is best enhanced with rapid economical marks on a small scale. Sampson made her watercolours in many locations in Greece, responding to a sense of place. The entirety of the watercolours Sampson regards as a portrait of Greece.
