Monastery of Panagia Spiliani

This morning we did directional exercises using pressure. In another similar exercise the leader touched and the follower expanded in movement towards the touch. After the morning activities we hiked up to a Monastery of Panagia Spiliani.

There we made a sequence of perspective sketches before continuing. Under the monastery we found that there was a cave which turned out to be a church.

95 steps down into the earth it was cold enough to see my breath. Looking around we found a small shrine to the Virgin Mary or "the Virgin of the Cave."

About an hour or so after leaving the monastery Derric and I joined Carissa in an artistic "excursion" during which we sketched some stairs coined "the death stairs" due to the seemingly perilous nature of their incline.

For the evening session we took a bus ride back to the Temple of Hera where we did a large scale charcoal landscape.
