Looking forward to lying lazily on a sandy beach?
Summer is almost here!
This little picture I came across yesterday reminded me of the lovely beach at St.Gordios, on the western side of Corfu. The drawing is a mixed technique: Some white chalk, some black pencil, white gouache and tempera.
I always keep lots of sketches in an old file in the store room, and from time to time I love searching and picking up those that remind me of special occasions. In case some of you wonder who this lady on the beach is, well, it's not me. It was sketched years ago, from an old black and white picture my mum used to keep in a box. It shows my mum in the early 60s!
