Greek island

Beach at Roda
 Recently got back from a trip to the Greek island of Corfu (Krkyra). Staying in the village of Acharavi in the North of the island. The hot sun and azure seas were an inspiration, as was the faded grandeur and peeling paint on some of the old buildings in Corfu Town.

The beach at Acharavi

Some buildings in the old part of Corfu Town.

I made notes and did some watercolours sketches in a tiny book
and will use them for reference to produce some paintings

The coast of Albania is only three kilometres away
