Traveling can be tiring. My middle son, sketched below, was taking a break from sight-seeing while we were in Athens, Greece, near the Acropolis. He was 13 and it was a hot day. He was probably wishing he was home, in a pool, with friends:)
A hot day in Mykonos, Greece. A boat that is used as part of an outdoor restaurant. About a dozen squid were tied to the lines. I might paint them in. About 8x10 in acrylic in a sketch book.
The Louvre on an overcast day. It was "free day"-- good for our family of five, but quite crowded, but it was worth it to see some of the greatest art in the world. Acrylic in sketch book.
Below, the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic, on a rainy day in August, 2013. I'm painting these sketches in acrylic in a sketchbook with heavy beige paper.
Below, Hagia Sofia, which means Shrine of the Holy of God, is an ancient church-turned-mosque-turned museum in Istanbul.
While in Istanbul, we bought Persian rugs at the Grand Bazaar.
Study sketch of Mykonos court yard. The sky was so blue against the white Greek buildings on the very hot day shown here.
