Last visited way back in May, Molos Plateia in Koroni was the venue for today’s on location sketching group.
This attractive, spacious square sits right on the harbour, so it gave us a broad range of subject matter….
The lofty trees provided a goodly amount of shady positions from which to draw…
and some brave souls ventured out into the midday sun in search of boats, benches and sea-side fishing paraphanalia.
The brightly coloured tavernas and cafe chairs at the top end of the square provided compelling subject matter….
This rickety old monument sits under a pomegranate tree and has a glorious backdrop of turquoise sea and the mountains of the Mani.
There are still several wonderfully ornate old benches scattered around the harbour, with colourful, rusting metalwork and peeling wooden slats.
This is the magnificent view of the castle entrance as seen from one end of Molos Plateia…
There were several grounded fishing boats lying around, which obligingly stood still whilst being drawn & painted….
and groups of old men lounging around drinking Greek coffee…..who sadly did not linger quite long enough!
This picturesque collection of houses sits right on the water’s edge, just below the castle…
Only one person chose to draw the fabulous old building on the corner of the square today – seen here with one of the few remaining old-fashioned lamp posts.
At the end of the morning we sat in the shade and had a look at everyone’s work. Then there was a surprise offering of walnuts, fresh from the trees of one of the group members….
Great work today everyone – Very well done.
