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.
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).
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.
first time I tried my hand at portraits (apart from my pencil and feet ones) at the last day of the workshop portrait-party.

Riot studios our workshop meeting point with its hidden garden. The perspective went askew a bit.
Jazz concert in ZLT seen from the balcony.
