I took the day off painting today (after doing five watercolors yesterday) and went to the National Archeology Museum instead. It was lovely to see the kouroi and the huge bronze statue of either Zeus or Poseidon.
Tonight we're taking the overnight ferry to Crete. It's mostly a new place to me, and I'm looking forward to painting somewhere new. I don't have preconceived notions in my head, since it's unfamiliar. So I don't get a jump on things (I know exactly where to head in Athens and am mentally prepared before I get there), but it will be fun to mix it up. Hopefully I'll find internet to post some sketches. I'll do it next time I can.
