I mentioned it earlier this week, we leave today on a six-week trip.
Destinations: Cyprus and Crete.
I have never been to either of these places, so loving everything new, I am quite excited . Of course we live in a wonderful place, and I would not need to travel very far to find great motifs, but one knows how it is: one does not look at home with the same curious eyes, the brain works in a very different way. When I am somewhere else, my brain is in acute discovery mode and my hand wants to paint everything my eyes see.
And if contemplative immobility does not overrule artistic eagerness, I should come back with loads of sketches to share.
Time to make the last travel preparations now, the most important being: making sure that I have all my painting stuff,watercolours, pens, sketch books. Unfortunately I won’t be able to take my watercolour tubes to refill the pans, as security at the airports would take them away. Well, this gives me an idea… I could take 2 tubes: of the probably most needed colours there, yellow for the sun and blue for the sea… and put them in my toilet bag among deodorant, tooth paste, mascara and so on! It would at least make the bag look much more attractive!
So, I will say Bye Bye for now… I wish you -and Kevin and me!- a great time, and see you again at the end of April… with a new post! 🙂
