Madeira – Hortensia Tea Garden


I just returned from a very nice vacation from the beautiful island Madeira, where we went for some wonderful hiking tours. So the next blog post will show some completely different sketches from what i usually do. Again this was somehow liberating, because all of a sudden everything is new and exciting when it comes to form and color. But nerveless, because it was my vacation I just sketched and painted when I was in the mood . Otherwise I just sat and relaxed and enjoyed.

The following were done after a nice tour when we stopped for tea and scones at the Hortensia tea gardens. We had a really nice chat with the owner and after two hours left totally relaxed.

    Was für ein schöner Zufall… ich fahre in zwei Wochen nach Canico… tolle Skizzen, man spürt die Wärme in den Farben. LG Elke.
