Umbrellas in the Rain, Athens

Climbing up the Metro steps at seven-thirty in the morning, I have finally arrived in Athens. At the top of the stairs, I glance back, waiting for my dad to catch up. Bags in hand, we exit the station at Syntagma Square, stepping into a sprinkling of rain from a dark sky promising more. Several hawkers crowd around, hoping to sell us umbrellas, but we politely decline and venture into the damp city.

  1. Thanks Peter,
    I don’t think watercolors are as difficult as most people make them out to be. Keep it simple and loose and you’ll do fine. I also think it help to know which colors go best together and to understand that you’ll just need to experiment.
    Best of luck and enjoy your time painting!
