august in greece

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.

sketch leonidion view

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.

sketch leonidion rosemary

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.

sketch leonidion kayak

energy which had to be channeled, me into sketching and my friend into a round of Plaka bay with her new kayak.

sketch leonidion oldmen

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.

sketch leonidion takis

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.
