A selection of sketchbook pages made in Cyprus

I’ve just enjoyed a relaxing break in Cyprus with my family.

This is how I saw the view from our apartment in Polis.

Hay, orange groves, palms, mountains, a purple haze and violet clouds.

Bats and Swallows.

 

 

Mike-in-the-Morning

Mike, who is from Vietnam, was busy all day.

I sketched him very early in the morning, watering the gardens and

cleaning the pool.

He always wore this quirky hat.

 

 

s4w-kittens

I have always vowed that I would never sit at a table,

painting, with a cat on my lap and a cup of coffee.

And there I was, painting with a cup of coffee and a cat on my lap.

It was nice.

Wild cats and kittens hide in the flower beds.

They hunt and devour lizards, huge bugs, cicada, snakes and ants.
