Am back home now on Crete and my Botanic Painting Course on Autumn Bulbs started yesterday. Tomorrow we are going to the beach to photograph and draw the flowers and bulbs of Pancratium maritimum. They will take some time to paint, but it will be a good exercise. The weather is very hot and humid, so it is fairly testing. My ladies are staying at Elounda Krini Hotel, which seems fine. It is very clean and quiet and we are able to sit in the shade by the pool to paint. We had a lovely meze lunch at Vachus restaurant and then a trip around the local jewellers. A day full of contrasts.
