Very First Sketchbook (#7)
Rhodes, 16.9.86 (Fine point marker in A5 sketchbook)
It's 1986 and I'm back in Greece, this time on the island of Rhodes, a new destination for me. I was there for three weeks and for the first of them I was on my own. Plenty of time to get some sketching done, I told myself, and to a certain extent that proved true.
I managed to find an apartment in Rhodes Old Town (something I was glad of when I saw the rather soulless concrete New Town outside) and spent a great deal of my time wandering round the moat inside the town walls. It was quiet there and mostly deserted and that's where this first Rhodes sketch was done.
