The friendly Omega taverna in Finikounda was our on loco venue this week…
We were made very welcome by Yeorgo, who hosted us in the absence of the owner Anastasia, who was unexpectedly in hospital….
We started, as usual, with some wrong-handed and some blind-contour drawing to quieten down the busy mind and warm up a bit – here’s a great one of me!
This fabulously loose and evocative sketch was done from the first floor of the taverna….
and this glorious collection of tables, chairs and pots, drawn from the side of the Omega, is actually of the taverna next door…
There was, as usual, a fairly broad choice of subject matter…
so the artists could choose their favourite subjects….
or explore new territory….
Of course, sometimes the subjects got moved around a bit by visiting diners….
This delightful painting of Finikounda was painted by Anastasia, the owner of the taverna, way back in 1955!
and this fabulous mermaid was expertly painted by Tracy a couple of years ago..
This lovely balcony-view was done by one of the group members at home during the week…
and these two paintings were started ‘on loco’ last week and finished later at home.
Nice work everyone – well done.
