Situated in the middle of a spectacular stretch of Cyprus coastline between Agia Napa and the famous Protaras Beach, is this lovely old fishing boat. Temporarily out of the water for some last minute repairs. It was hot, windy and remote but I just had to take the time and try to paint it. I hope […]
This charming Ayia Napa medieval monastery dedicated to ”Our Lady of the Forests” stands in the middle of the village of Agia Napa surrounded by a high wall. Both the village and the monastery take their name from the ancient Greek word for wooded valley “Napa”– a reference to the morphology of the area in […]
Sailing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge a sketch in watercolour There’s something about Sydney harbour that just makes you feel the luckiest person on earth. Especially on a day like today. Warm, sunny with the occasional light breeze. Just perfect. This is more of a quick sketch than a finished watercolour piece but I thought Ill […]
It has been a while since I have posted something new. Surgery and health took it’s toll this time. Anyway it was a gorgeous morning here in Sydney today, and standing at this magical place taking it all in was worth everything. Even though the warm breeze was drying out the paper far too quickly, the […]
Situated at the foothills of the Troodos Mountains is this wonderful Medieval village. It dates as far back as the 6th Century and right from the start you walk back in time with every step you take in this place. History and character is everywhere you look. I love this town and I promised my self to […]
It started raining in the morning about 8 o’clock. It only lasted for an hour but it was enough to have most of the city roads semi flooded. By eleven the sun was out with cobalt blue skies. Just like nothing had happened. I love the first rains here. The subtle smell of earth mixed […]
Something a little different, there’s a great pizza restaurant next to where I paint sometimes in Protaras. I couldn’t resist painting the Chefs behind the open kitchen, It was hot, steamy, busy and smelled delicious. Loved every minute of it. My favorite is the stone oven in the corner. Hope you like it.
Just only a few kilometres out of Larnaca and around the corner from the airport is the Hala Sultan (Umm Haram) Tekke. It stands next to the salt lake just south of Larnaca and is one of the first sights you see heading out of the airport. With the salt lake on one side and […]
Every first Sunday of the month markets are held in front of the old Castle at Limassol. This Sunday I happened to be there just as they were setting up. I hope you like it.

Hi, my name is Savva and I am a watercolour artist. It has been my passion right from the start. From the first time I put brush to paper. I love everything about watercolour but most of all, its unpredictablility. It has a mind of its own but if you allow it, oftentimes it will paint for you. No other medium will do that or give you the same buzz that watercolour does. The most engaging of all media.
