Somewhere Sunny


Another entry for my Sicilian sketch book.  A lovely sunny corner to sit in my favourite garden, surrounded by lemon trees and flanked by two Rococò columns.   You can while away the afternoon here, imagining
how beautiful the garden originally looked.
Done in watercolour and coloured pencil.

Lovely, we went somewhere the other day that had an orangery. I could spend a few hours in a place like that. Nice rendition :D

What a pretty place that is, and your little paintings are just charming. You're very good at capturing the feeling of the place. Thanks for sharing your special spot with us! nancy

Love it! It brings me to the fantasy world and dreamland ^^ I could see myself wondering away with these sort of arrangement in a nice afternoon. Beautiful drawing!

I want to while away my afternoon here too - I do enjoy your delicate sketches - I can imagine a whole travel book with your illustrations.

This is really beautiful. I like the way you added just a few touches of pen. It really adds to the overall look.
