Watercolour Cavo Greco Boat

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 […]

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 […]

A watercolour of the Sydney harbour bridge

Sydney Town Hall and QVB in Watercolour

Rainy day at Limassol Castle Watercolor by Savva

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 […]

Protaras Kitchen Chefs in Watercolour by Savva

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.
