Day 102: Kerkira Streets

Three sketches using Staedtler pigment liners 0.05, 0.1, 0.2 & 0.3 & 0.5mm widths and Ecoline Brush Pens for tone. 16:9 Winsor & Newton sketchbook.

First one near “Mon Repos”, birthplace of Prince Philip, the DoE:

Second from the restaurant En Plo looking at the Old Fort:

Lastly, an evening looking up the “Guildford Road” while eating deep fried Loukoumades:

Capturing the ‘shape of the space’ enclosed in the piazzas and old winding streets. In some cases the subject was not suitable, too ‘square’ and in other cases I just failed.

The Prisma app still fascinates me and taunts me by producing the boldly coloured paintings that I’d like to make myself. Here a a few variations:

  1. Wonderful Steve. Are you ever coming back? 🙂 Missed you at a splendid outing of the Men & Women Of Uncertain Age on Sunday night. Miss you generally 🙂 G

    1. Thanks for watching, Godfrey!
      Glad to hear you’re flourishing at Café Church. We’re thinking deeply about our future being mostly in Greece 🇬🇷 with visits to England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
      It’s all about the quality of the community, the culture, ..and the fresh figs. It’s turned into a 6-month trip; back in time to publish the Mother of All Christmas Newsletters 😎

      1. Ha! I can understand the draw (sic) of that. Will you be back by the 16th for the Mother of All Carol Services?
