went to lovely places in Pilion and Evia during the August Heatwave, and sitting on the beach my sketching urge came back after a long absence.
so finally renovated the bathroom (see amazing tiles), used demolished Bathtub as new goldfish pond (pictures will come later when the plants look presentable), meantime discovered linen as best to wear in the heat bought a dress at L**l in plain white so dug out my 50 year old Lino cut set and combined all. The white still bothers me a bit but I think it is better now.
went to stay with my friend in Leonidion for 3 days and apart from having a great time got inspired to sketch again. Here the view of her upstairs window.
the red rock in the first sketch is becoming a magnet for rock climbers, this cafe is run by the local rock climbing cooperative, humming with energy.
energy which had to be channeled, me into sketching and my friend into a round of Plaka bay with her new kayak.
the old men’s table under an overloaded orange tree in the village square with ever changing occupation, I was lucky for these 3 to sit long enough for a quick sketch.
lunch on the beach in Poulithra and a rest (and a very small sketch).
inspired to sketching after a long time by my friend in Leonidion, on the beach in the sun, perfect.

some sketches I made of Ed flying (or rather of going to fly just to realize that conditions were not right) turned into a little gif story.
I joined my friend Rosemary with her last exhibition of Marine life paintings in Leonidion. We had a lot of fun and heard some good music too for the 4 days of the aubergine festival all over town.
did not do as many sketches as hoped for….. just these two.
