A Busman’s Holiday

16 Dec

kyrenia-turret

Husb and I managed to book a very cheap, out of season package holiday in North Cyprus last week – seven days of warmth, sunshine and lovely food. It’s a beautiful country and we split our time between chilling out and exploring. The nearest city is Kyrenia and when we took the bus in, I took my brown paper sketchbook and conté crayons along with me and did a quick sketch. I didn’t do any drawing for the first couple of days. I draw more or less every day because it’s my job and to be honest I wanted a good break, but by the third day I was  getting itchy fingers and had to have a scribble when we stopped to have a sit down opposite this little mosque.So it turned into a busman’s holiday after all.

    such a lovely image. I love the minarets on Mosques. Such beautiful buildings.
    Lucy you to be in warm climes. Snow is melting here and should dip to 18F (-7C). Thank goodness all the animals are indoors!

      Crikey! Minus 7!!!!!!! Oooffff. We’re lucky it’s a reasonably short flight to the Mediterranean for some winter sun and so cheap at this time of the year too. Would be nice to have some snow though xx
