Day 9 and 10


Back yard to village house in Viscri

Back yard to village house in Viscri

Pencil sketch – evocative of so many “back yard” in these villages – often with a barn or two at the end, a hut for a toilet and grass for the livestock when they’re brought down from the hills in the evening.

Fortified church at Saxon village of Valea Viilor

Another of the fortified churches. A magnificent structure that dominates and broods over the village. My watercolour has failed to capture this and looks more like a Disneyland creation out of plastic and paper. Why? Don’t know. Maybe it was too hot and the sun too high, draining life and inspiration. Poor excuse!
