another lovely day on the beach in Karystos with friends.
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.
