The Five Fingered Peak

kyrenia-mounts-3

On our last day in idyllic Northern Cyprus (Kuzey Kibris), Husb and I went on a day trip from Kyrenia (Girne) across to the eastern coastal town, Famagusta (Gazimağusa), a fascinating dip into the geology, history and culture of the country. On our way back, heading north over the Kyrenia Mountains as the sun was setting, our lovely driver stopped the bus to let us photograph, in my case scribble, a formation called the Five Finger Peak (Pentadactylos). As other travellers snapped away, I pulled out my brown paper sketchbook and conté crayons and hastily sketched the scene before the driver ushered us back onto the bus and darkness descended. As I drew, one of our company, a jolly Dutchmen, laughed, “That’s an old-fashioned way of photographing the scenery“. Quick as a flash I retorted with, “You should see me taking a Selfie“.

 

I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
