I was working on saturday, since here the weekend is on thursday-friday. Actually I had to work also during the weekend so I hadn't a lot of time. Today I managed to draw something. Ok, I post the sketches of the last days. A scattered sketchcrawl.

And my first SC outside Italy! :)

Sumhuram (today called Khor Rori), I work here directing the restoration of the old walls. I made this drawing to imagine how the original "sea gate" could be.

Tomorrow if I have enough time, I will post some pictures too.

Nice group of sketches. I like the one of the beach at Khor Rori best.

Yes, really like the beach one but the detail and sense of place in the others is great. Good luck with restoring those walls, sounds like a fascinating job.

How strange... I did my last 2 sketchcrawls in Oman, and this one in Italy. We have swopped locations.

Nice results.
