Over the road.

This was my last painting. The veiw across the street. The scooter was going to be the focal point but was driven away 10 minutes after I started.

View from the room

This was the view south towards the island, we were on the north coast.

In the pool

Here is Sam and Charlie in the pool. drawing water from life is hard, painting it impossible!

The Boys.

First up a watercolour of Sam. In the shade by the pool, great to have such bright light to give lots of reflective colour.
My only other chance was to paint one of Danny but that was on a watercolour postcard pad and I sent that image to Sara. If I can get a copy I will put it on here.

I did a few of Jack. This is the best of the bunch. He doesn't stay still for very long so i have to be quick.

Danny would let me draw him and I was pleased with this likeness.

Charlie also sat for a while and thanks to him for the pad. He gave this to me as a gift a couple of years back.

Rethmynon Crete

Its been a week since I got back from Crete with my four boys.
Needed to get away, wife has left after 23 years, on 16th July.
It is hard for me but even more so for the boys. So this was something to take there minds off events.

The wether was hot but we all got to relax and I got to draw and paint most of them.

What follows is the results.
This was a view of our room from beside the pool.
