At Angkor Wat Yesterday Afternoon

The heat and humidity and exhaustion from globe trotting finally caught up with me and I had to take it easy a bit, which meant I have missed sketching in the market at Siem Reap. 

But in the afternoon, I joined most of the group to sketch again at Angkor Wat...an amazing complex of buildings, not unlike Fatehpur Sikri in India..and such a large complex, I feel I barely saw the place.  With limited time, you have to choose to either see things, or sketch them...it's hard to do both, as I learned spending days walking around Versailles.


But here is a photo of the main sketch from today, as well as one from yesterday...


Bangkok next...

Most of the group arriving to sketch at Angkor Wat--Laurel Holmes, Liz Steel, Marc Taro Holmes, Shawne from NYC, Daniel (look how his hat perfectly aligns with the Angkor Tower :( , Me, Amber, Gail Wong, Joel from Washington DC  (who later had a monkey steel his sketching ink and DRINK IT!), and Suhita Shirodkar.  Missing is Shari Blaukopf and Spiro, and Suta from Tennessee.) Yes, it was very humid, drizzly, and very overcast.
