Sun is out

I spent the day in the park, where a lot of flowers are in bloom already. I tried to draw something different but ended up with this. The paper is anything but ideal but so far I haven´t found anything better at the art supply shop. I need to expand my search.

I also finally found inspirations for my Athens watercolour book and what I would like to put into it! So I will start with that later today. It took me a while to get used to the city but I think I am getting there.

  1. One of the things I like about this lovely artwork: At first I thought the woman was a bird of paradise flower. She does have the colors of one, too. Looking forward to seeing what you present from the Athens watercolor book!

  2. Great job, Mel! I really, really like this one!

    You say that it has taken you a while to get used to Athens. Do you mean just the city itself and finding things and so on, or rather that it has been quite the culture shock? I can imagine the Athens is very different than Reykjavik!

    1. Thank you 🙂 Yes, I think it was somewhat the change of being in a huge city. Easy enough to find my way around. But getting here after 7 months non stop in Iceland where the only thing that will kill you is the weather and suddenly being faced with crowds of people, air polution, mad scooter drivers, criminality… it certainly made a difference. But I am slowly discovering also some nicer parts of the city. Like a huge park area in the north were I spent the day sunbathing yesterday 🙂
