My sketchbook and days out...




It's the beginning of the summer, and hopefully there will be more time to sketch and paint.  To start with are some tiny little pears.  Every year I can't resist sketching them, they are all different shapes and none bigger than my thumb.



A 'manderino' was hiding in  my sketchbook too (that's one from a couple of months ago).





Out walking in the woods I was struck by how many pink flowers there were, these are just a few.






I've had my mum here to stay for 10 days so some days out... it's nice to be a tourist sometimes!
This is Cefal├╣, we had a wander around and some lunch overlooking the sea. 





We also ate here on a trip to Erice. It was an old house with much of it's original decorations, we sat upstairs in what could have been a bedroom.  I had the fish cous cous!  This place is an off-shoot of Maria Grammatico's well known cake shop next-door, so we couldn't leave without tasting some almond pastries.




I wrote about Erice in one of my previous posts here if you want to know more.
