Yesterday we took a great 2 hour boat trip along the river in Bangkok, stopping at the picturesque floating market for a quick sketch.
Color to follow, but here are a few images.
|Floating market, Bangkok, dark and under a train bridge...almost medieval, packed|
with people and amazing foods cooked on the spot.
|Can you see it? My quick pencil sketch of the market boats.|
I managed around 8 pencil sketches today--no time to watercolor and it was also too hot and crowded--mostly very quick sketches. Late in the day, I headed on my own back to the Wat Bawon not too far from our hotel. It's a very beautiful, comparatively simple collection of buildings, also where we went out first night here to mark Buddha Day, so to me, it's a special place!
|Gail, a bit of John, and me at the Temple with the emerald buddha (actually|
jade)...it's super hot and humid, and we actually got a bit of sun today for a change.
|Trying to squeeze in so much onto one piece of paper...bells clanging, people everywhere, extraordinary heat, a true visual and audio overload even for me...exhausting and exhilarating!|
| Three quick sketches of smaller (ha!) spaces...really complex buildings to draw, especially|
