Very First Sketchbook (#11)
















Akandia Boatyard, Rhodes, 27.9.86
(Fine point marker in A5 sketchbook)

Going south east from the Old Town there are three harbours, the last of them being Akandia. There's a large boatyard at Akandia and I thought it might be interesting to find some boats to draw. Instead, I found myself fascinated by this old converted lorry.

I've enjoyed looking at these pages from your sketch book. They are so professional and you obviously enjoyed doing them. I've never got the same enjoyment from sketching but I do like my life drawing sessions.

I do enjoy doing them but it's a constant struggle to make myself actually start. Must try harder.

As for life drawing, well, I did some years ago but have never felt a strong desire to do more. Shameful, I know.

I can see how this would take you attention away from the boats.

It certainly stood out.
