Today it was raining, so I sat in our clubhouse and did this sketch. It’s been raining quite a bit recently – thank goodness – because it’s cooling things down a little. The odd looking shapes on the left are rather uncomfortable high backed chairs.
Not much to say about this one – just keeping my eye in with an evening doodle…my wife wouldn’t let me draw her after my last effort!
So, it’s back to the late night sketches of the coffee table and our clutter. It might be repetitive but I still enjoy just doodling each evening.
Having drawn my youngest daughter studying the other day, a friend asked me to draw my eldest relaxing after having finished her International Baccalaureate exams. This is the result – most of her relaxing has consisted of having a well deserved snooze!
This is the last sketch I did last Saturday. This is apparently the world’s largest Chinatown arch – inaugurated in 2015. It’s pretty spectacular and very colourful and complicated – I only managed to capture a bit of it.
This view is of what I think is MacArthur Bridge, over the Pasig River. Unfortunately the river really pongs, so after a few minutes we moved on, as the smell was a bit overpowering. I finished this off today with a few ink lines from my trust UniPin pen which I find will draw on anything. I used a water-soluble graphite pencil to do the initial drawing.
Today I am posting my last three sketches from my sketch-walk with ‘TheLifeDrawingSetup’ group last Saturday. This is stained glass window in Sta. Cruz Church, that overlooks the plaza – and a group of little stands selling drinks and snacks. I didn’t have time to finish this on site and added most of the colour at home from a photo.
