Shady Sketching at the Monastery

 This week’s sketching location was Aghios Theodoros Monastery, near Homatero…

Setting up base-camp in the shade of the giant oak tree, we warmed up with some wrong-handed portraits…

Having obtained the keys from the Priest, we were able to admire the frescos inside the chapel as well as the Priest’s own artwork in his little office.

The rest of the morning was spent sketching the Monastery from a selection of shady vantage points….

Here’s the group clutching the fruits of their labours…

and here are their lovely paintings….

A fabulous morning’s work, in a special place.

  1. Thank you Gill for all the sketching day opportunities. I have got so much out of them and feel I have developed my own sketchbook/journal style when I look back at previous efforts.
    I will really miss all the outdoor sketching, and the lovely group that is , but hope that I will continue sketching back in England …under grey skies without sharp light isn’t as appealing !!
    I’l miss you and everyone else..x
