2010 Three by the Sea

Buon giorno!  My husband and I have finished traveling three weeks in Sicily. I heartily recommend it for its beauty, friendly people, fabulous food. Whenever we travel, I am excited to see a new body of water and I love how the names roll off the tongue. Here are three sea sketches. I can't capture the wonderful blues - maybe my dry paints aren't rich enough - I hope I captured the peace. The first is a surprising Mediterranean view from an inexpensive hotel, the second, a view of E'rice, an ancient fortress hill town on the  Tyrranean Sea, the third, just a random beach on the Gulf of Palermo. All viewed from Sicily.

Next stop, Greece. Hope you are all enjoying good sketching in the northwest! Peggy
