Tzatziki for tea

What's a girl to do while the football is on? Well, she could skillfully get the channel changed so she can watch Greece (my new adopted country) beat Russia, rather than the Poles and the Czechs (first choice of man about the house), and cheer them on during the exciting bits. However, 90 minutes is a long time to watch men running around some grass kicking a ball about, so she had to play with her pencils and pens too.

I doodled on some scraps of paper left over from another project. I think the bottom girl is calling out for a proper portrait. She has a touch of the Greek about her anyway.

My heart is still in Greece. A trip to the supermarket saw me bringing home the ingredients for a Corfu salad, Greek yoghurt in assorted flavours and a vat of Tzatziki. I am pretending that the sound of the wind ruffling through the trees outside is actually waves lapping upon a sandy shore.

These are my Sunday Sketches. I was all set to play last week from my holiday shores. But, despite producing the requisite pieces and having the required technology at my disposal to make it happen, somehow lying by the pool, leaping through the waves with my son and gazing into the blue won out. Sorry folks!

  1. Glad you had a nice holiday...your girl is lovely!!Albeit she looks a tad annoyed at having to return to civilization!! teehee...You have the expression down to a tee!! Greek food is awesome! I think my family over dosed on greek salad after years of having it almost daily with dinner! So now we omit the peppers, but still love our feta on everything!!

  2. I have never been to Greece but sure wanna be there some day. It attracks me a lot and i love Greek salads, feta and ofcourse the white house and the blue paint, blue sea, lots of sun. Or so is Greece in my fantasy.
    Your sketches are beautiful, colours that bring some sunshine because overhere the weather is grey. :-)

  8. Lovely women you draw here. I look forward to seeing the Greek one grow into a full fledged drawing/painting. I like the triangle bit under the eye of the other!

  9. Such a beautiful color in your sketches. I love Greek food, but unfortunately we don't get it here very often. So I make my own tzaziki, but what about a good gyros? Oh darn...
