Overlooking the Castle

Oh lucky you Sylvia, it sounds wonderful, it's been vile here today, very windy, rainy and cold. What I'd give to be sitting on a sunny terrace with a glass of something nice and a bowl of olives! A lovely happy sketch!

What a pleasant way to spend a few hours, I've almost forgotton what sunshine feels like! There is a lovely harmony in your sketch which reflects the sunshine and mediterranean feel. Enjoy the rest of your holiday Sylvia.

A lovely, colourful sunshiny painting. It sounds like bliss Sylvia!

So what better way to while away the time than painting them and drinking the local plonk. This is Water colour , Inktense pencils and a bit of pen. In my A3 moleskine sketch book.
