Somewhere on Aegean sea.

Ferry from Sifnos to Athens. I was really tired but I wanted to captured this moment. I almost left the drawing unfinished because of the really stong wind and also I was continuously missing the colors! But an “urban sketch” should be truthful to the circumstances, no?

Summer sketch at Athens. The impressive Temple of  Olympian Zeus and the Acropolis on the background.  It was so hot, I think my watercolors never got dry so fast! It was hard to work “wet on wet” in these conditions…

Piazza della Cisterna, also known for hosting the “gelato world champion” ice cream store! I tasted it after the sketch! One more of Khan sketches, on his 1928-29 trip.

I did this sketch last September at the astonishing San Salvatore, a romanesque-style, former basilica church located in Spoleto, Umbria. The church-keeper told me he would close the church in 5 minutes when I was thinking on making the sketch, so I had to do a really fast one!

Back to black and white drawings . Capri, while waiting for the boat.  People constantly interrupted me to ask for informations about the ferry service ! The light was amazing when I started drawing! 1 hour sketch, uni-ball on Caballo paper.
