I'll be around the Queen's Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain - if anyone out there will be in this part of the world.

Sadly, there was such a downpour (we're in rainy and hurricane season) I had to abandon my position after about 20 mins.

I tried to get away from the rain and ended up at a shopping mall west of Port-of-Spain. I was able to get one sketch done of the savannah looking north to our Northern Range before the rain.

Image

I took a photo when the rain started.

Image

I tried my hand at a fountain at the mall. I felt too self-conscious and stopped. So went to a corner in the eating area and spied a mermaid fountain, which I sketched instead.

Image

I returned to the savannah after the rains and found it flooded out.

Image

I tried to get in two more sketches - one of the 'Magnificent Seven' and another of a coconut vendor's truck. The trees were still dripping with rain and wet my sketches, so I couldn't stay to finish them properly.

Image

Image

I made up for my rained-out day by spending too much money at the art and book stores I visited at the mall. I was very happy to locate Inktense and Cretacolor pencils and leads.

I look forward to participating again, hopefully I'll have more sketches then.


Regards to all.

thanks for sharing, caribe!
nice landscape you might have sketched in! Funny enough, you found that dancing mermaid in all that pouring rain ;-) I like your truck! See you soon!
