Good evening ..I hope you have enjoyed this Bank Holiday what ever you have been doing, where ever you are, some of you may or may not know that I was fortunate enough to go away in May for 10 Days to Mykonos one of the small Islands of Greece,and while there I have been doing some sketches, pen and washes and a few watercolours and I thought I would share some of them with you ...and as it was almost a year ago I did anything on the Studio side of the Blog.. It's about time...
So join me in my Mykonos Art Trail 2013
|'Agois Ioannis Bay '|
Just a short walk from the Hotel Sketched and painted sitting in the Bar / Taverna where 'Shirley Valentine' was filmed...the whole area has been updated and almost bears no resemblance to the original film set ( but then must be 25 years ago at least.)
There are so many pots and urns about.... this is a very typical scene with the arch windows..I was really playing around with colours....
|'Stone Arch Window'|
These 2 completed today..... no colour but may do later.... it was a good excersise....
|'Bellissimo Archway '|
Again in Pen after a mamoth lunch ...and a red wine or two...I found this small arch way tucked away at the end of the bar area...It dosn't lead anywhere...just a cubby hole .....
|''Come on In ''|
|'Step to a view'|
I have to say in the interest of 'ART' some of the views have been re arranged only a few are as in 'Situ' so to speak the rest well .....unless you go you'll never know....
A Big thank you to Mike and Theo the Two Brothers that run the resort along with their family not forgetting Mum and Papa for makeing us feel so welcome during our brief stay .
If you want to go somewhere to relax, eat well and enjoy the easy way of life in very pleasant surroundings or hop on a bus into town ,that takes only 10mins, meander along the very narrow streets,shop in some of the smallest shops I have ever seen in Little Venice, or watch the local farmers and fisher men sell their wares,along the harbour front or just sit and watch the world go by, then you won't go wrong if you go there...
I do hope you have enjoyed the trail and maybe like the compositions, I hope to do more from the pictures I took whilst away and show you more later this year but as we are heading for another Show on QVC on July 11th at 11pm..We will be busy prepping along with some new products, Stencil designs and More New Decoupage Stamps Sets on their way...busy times ahead...I will however show you the samples from the last show in more detail over the next few days so pop back soon
Happy Crafting Jayne x
