Its not the same bar, obviously, but it’s a bar. Waiting for paella this time. Still in the sun, well, even better, in the shade. Only the English feel it’s decadent to sit in the shade, as if we’re wasting sunshine. So many bars, so little time.
This one is in Santa Eularia, Ibiza. Nice paella. And this one is in Ibiza Town , just coffee. And then the one through the trees, with the red chairs is in Portinatx. Excellent steak sandwiches. There were more but I’m sure you’re starting to get the picture. (Get the picture! Get it?)
This morning we have been into Ibiza Town and had a walk round the castle and the old town. When you see the pictures you will see why it is magical.
So we went into the Old Town, which consists mainly of steps, all of them going up.
You can see why we spend so much time in bars, we’re really just appreciating the view, nothing to do with alcohol at all.
Anyway, I took my sketchbook with me instead of Zentangle tiles and did a fair bit of drawing, mainly on the balcony in the evenings. I hadn’t been thrilled with my attempt at Yuma last week, so, when the Diva just asked for pink, I decided to try Yuma again but with pink highlights. I like it better than last week’s attempt but I’m not sure the pink improves it visually. Maybe it’s too delicate, a bit wishy washy.
The Facebook page Square One, Purely Zentangle, had us using Aquafleur, one of those tangles I like to see but I have trouble making it do my will. So here are my many attempts, some more successful than others, but you can’t say I’m not a tryer.
And just before we went, I saw a thing on Youtube on a site called Shoobeedoodling. Lots of little tutorials on “How to draw…”. Now not all of them are to my taste but you will have gathered by now that I am the world’s worst draughtsman. Can’t draw a line without help and certainly couldn’t draw/paint anything representational. So here are two I did following the instructions on Youtube. Proud in spite of myself. Now I know, world, that you can do better, but for me, these are good.
Well, that’s it for now. Sorry I dragged you through the photo album but somebody has to get it, it may as well be you. Goodnight world, it’s been a long day, 1500 miles and it feels like I’m still travelling.
