andalusia diary – 1



So we arrived in Andalusia after a very long day traveling and I have been trying to write my travel diary for the last few days. WiFi is pretty hit and miss here, so today you are getting a few day’s worth of photo’s all at once.

This holiday is mostly about watercolour painting being taught by one of “my man’s” favourite artists, Álvaro Castagnet. Álvaro is a wonderful artist from Uruguay, a great teacher and charming person with a most refreshing sense of humour. The group of 19 students much fun to be with and a great mixture of nationalities…Italien, Swedish, French, German, British, Canadian, American, Indian and South African…making every day fun filled and very interesting. I usually tag along, running errands and organising lunch for artist hubby, trying to squeeze in a little knitting here and there, as well as taking lots of photos. Lucky for me that Álvaro brought his better half along, Ana Maria and I are becoming firm friends sharing many of the same interests.

As you can gather, days are filled with a lot of colour and new inspiration at every corner, evenings are filled with a lot of vino and laughter. Any spare time we can be found leaving footsteps in the sand!


Enjoy! X.

postcards from barcelona

Last week we jetted off to the sun for a few days. It was very much ‘Last minute’, but we all needed a few days away from it all. It was also a big huge mahoosive ‘Well Done’ to ‘our girl’ for landing herself the job of a lifetime.

We all got on a plane to Barcelona, for some Sun, Sangria and Gaudi…

There really is nothing more relaxing than lazy days spent under endless blue skies by the sea. Laying on your deck chair, listening to the gentle slapping of waves, the occasional boat engine, people laughing, chatting and generally having fun, whilst a subtle whiff of suncream flows your way in the breeze.

Our few days in Barcelona had all the perfect ingredients to feel perfectly chilled by the end of it.

Now back to the studio!
