Just got back from a wonderful vacation in Greece. While I was there I bought a little watercolour set because I really wanted to relax and paint in the outdoors. I thought I would share it on the website.Hope you like them!

These two where done in the beach of Chania, Crete , while sitting down in the towel. On these I tried to paint directly without any preliminary sketch , just putting on colour masses and continue from there.

I did this one from life. In the terrace of a small hotel in the south of Crete. The beach has the nickname of "Sleeping Dragon" for the shape the rocks and beach make from this point of view.
