Holiday Sketches.

A holiday with a difference, Here are some sketches from my sketchbook done while we were away on our recent cruise adventure.

1: Firstly, here are some drawings of passengers at the airport and on the plane.
2: Then, this is from inside the suite we had. Great room! The view from 2 angles.
3: From the balcony of our suite, this is the view of the church, a single yacht, and another of some boats at Lifou.
4: We went on a tour in Lifou to the Cliffs of Jokin. This hut was at the lookout at the cliffs.

5: The beach scene here is the beach at Lifou.

6: This chair is on the balcony of the suite and then their is the view as I looked back at the ship from out in the bay in Vila. 7: Here we have the stalls on the dock at Vila, locals all waiting to sell you some souvenirs. We went on a tour to some gardens and I drew the bird, the dog and the plant there.
8: I went snorkeling at Vila. I loved that so much, here are some pictures os some of the fish I saw. I drew these from Photos.

All drawings are ink and watercolour!

Hello, I found your link from Penny's. Wow - way to go. When you on a tour, you keep a sketchbook of everything. Lovely.
Was it a cruise to the Solomons or Noumea or where?
