The ‘on location’ sketchers had to speed up a bit this week, as the morning was split between two different locations in Yamia.
We began, in dappled shade, at the tiny, restored, Byzantine Church of Panagia Theotokou…
then ended the morning with further sketches, back at the kafeneon.
The two, quite different locations offered a very pleasant range of subjects….
ranging from the stone-built archways around the church….
to visiting insects, prickly-pears….and cafe pedal bins….
olive trees, potted plants….
These gorgeous old metal tables were a popular choice.
As usual, the group had a great mixture of styles…
even though the same subject matter was chosen….
Did I mention there was a fig tree down by the church?
Back at the kafeneon, these old BBQ’s, plants and bike were just asking to be drawn….
as was the tractor.
Just time for a quick portrait before calling it a day.
Well done everyone for working so hard (and quickly!) today – a great collection of work. Oh, I almost forgot….here’s some of the wrong-handed warm-ups….
