Watery sketches from Turkey

I had the great privilege and pleasure of visiting Turkey in April, as a guest of wonderful British/Iranian friends. Though it was a short 6-day trip, I sketched as much as I could. I was enchanted by the places and people I encountered. One glorious day was spent sailing along the Aegean coast. The water in early afternoon was purely turquoise in shallow spots.Turkey, sailing along the Aegean coastTurkey, the Aegean coast near BodrumTurkey, Easter Sunday sailTurkey, lunch in BodrumTurkey, orange sailboat

What wonderful colours. Ive sailed in the Aegean Sea and it is really something quite special and you've captured it perfectly.

Only in the Mediterranean countries are the seas such wonderful colours of turquoise. You've caught the colours and the moments well.

I'd have been hard pressed to come back home again!

Thanks, everyone. Jeanette, you can see how long I've lingered over these---it's been very hard to not be there!
