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.
