Summer is on it's way

You knew it's nearly summer when the beach huts start going up.  These are on  Mondello beach just on the outskirts of Palermo, a popular place for the younger generation with music blasting from the bars and scooters parked along the side of the road.  But it does retain some of its old fashioned elegance with it's Liberty style summer homes and the famous Charleston Restaurant (now Le Terrazze).

Lovely sketch! There is a place called Southwold not too far from me that is well known for it's beach huts. I love to see them as they aare all so brightly painted.

It's a beautiful little painting that definitely gets me in the mood for summer. Your colors are beautiful, and I love the simple composition.

I wish someone would tell our weather that it is supposed to be summer!! Your beach hut makes me long for long lazy hot summer days!!

I found your blog via "The Fading Rose". I love your sketches and photos of Palermo.

So colorful and nice. It gives you a clean and hopeful feeling. I'd like to see one at the end of the summer too.

Absolutely love the drawing. It's relaxing to look at

Wonderful drawing, so expressive! I love this season, when summer arrives and it's not to hot yet. And I love seeing the beach huts go up, too (especially this year, after all this rain...)
