Bayon, Angkor, Cambodia

My old students in Cambodia asked for some drawings of the Bayon to print on a T-shirt, so that got me looking through my old sketchbooks. Here are the Bayon drawings I found.

I was lucky enough to spend 7 years living and working in Cambodia. For holidays I used to travel up to Siem Reap and spend a whole week just hanging about the temples and drawing. My drawings were bolder and I used less ink back then…inspiration for changing for what I do now. I’ll be posting a few more from Cambodia and other times in batches….

Day 164 – Souvenirs

I picked out a few random souvenirs to paint (in ink, watercolour and watercolour pencil) today – a pipe from Cambodia, coral (which I really shouldn’t have) from the Philippines and a little prayer wheel from Bhutan. They all turned out to be brown or variations of yellow and orange – that didn’t make this easy!
