Having been ill for several weeks, I feel like I've missed out on the start of the summer here in Greece. So made a big effort yesterday and headed off to the beach with a new(ish) moleskin sketchbook, water pen, a handfull of pens and some brand new Caran D'Ache Neocolour crayons.
As this was the crayons' first outing, I hadn't accounted for the fact that they are not for outdoor use here (in a Greek summer!) Think - bar of chocolate in 38 degree heat....not a pretty sight. No longer pristine, they have now re-formed at least, thanks to some freezer blocks that were keeping a watermelon cold.
Anyway - despite getting in a bit of a mess, I managed to exercise both crayons and moleskin and produce a couple of sketches from under the umbrella!
