Bangkok, THAILAND [RESULTS]

Postby eyes » Sun Jan 11, 2009 4:19 am

I first had my ambitious plan to go sketching the Grand Palace in downtown Bangkok but my daughter got sick. So we had to take her to the doctor in the morning. So I adjusted my plan by starting to sketch some pot plants, and Thai topiary at my parent home, which is close to the doctor clinic. Then we took our daughter home and I got to sketch scenes from my neighborhood temple which situates next to the orchard canal. We live in the orchard suburban of Bangkok, called "Bangmod". It used to be the area famous for a kind of sweet tangerines. I closed today with the canal scene (Bangmod canal or the Thai called it "Klong Bangmod") across from our gate community. The last few pieces, I had to add the gouache wash at home due to I have to hurry home for my daughter care. I really have a good time sketching outdoor today. I have to Thank my DH, Tone for driving me to the temple, which I had already forgot that we have an interesting one in our neighborhood. BTW, my daughter is feeling much better now... whew.

#6 Thai water canal convenient shop, opposite from our gated community. Bangkok used to be called "Venice of the East". Now many of the little canal ended up becoming streets.

Thanks for looking.

Sorry I have trouble posting image directly in the post. I did try to click on "Img" and include the URL but the image still does not show so I have to use the link instead. If anyone can fix it, I highly appreciate. Thanks. Ai

Great sketches and very lucent colors on the trees and the temple.
