Hellenic sketches

Here are a few sketches created whilst in Pethkos, Greece. I have a set of watercolour pencils that travel with my sketch book on holiday. The first sketch is the sunset view from Philosophia restaurant where hubby and I had a lovely dinner one night. The second sketch is the view from our swimming pool by the Anixi Taverna. The third sketch is of some random cactus by the pool side. The fourth sketch is the view from Pethkos beach which we visited most days.

Hubby and I have seen many beautiful places in Greece over the last ten years, so I am pondering on creating a small collection of Hellenic landscape oil paintings to document this. ♥

Pefkos, Greece

Hubby and I have just returned from a week in Pefkos, Greece. Pefkos is a former fishermans town in a hilly and secluded location between Lardos and Lindos on the southern coast of Rhodes island. Beautiful beaches, fantastic views and lots of great places to eat. We loved the glass bottom boat that took us around the rocky coastline to Lindos. Greece is probably our favourite holiday destination.
