Bayne travelled from Spain to Naples then sailed to Athens, where he began a month of sketching in Greece and Turkey. His drawings reflect his interest in Classical structures, as seen in the examples of Hadrian's Arch and the columns near the Temple of Dionysius at the foot of the Parthenon. He also made careful architectural drawings of Byzantine churches and Islamic mosques. Bayne's observations of the customs and daily life of places he visited can be seen in two views from Constantinople, one of which shows the tomb monuments of the Islamic cemetery and the other a marketplace.
