Doha, Qatar RESULTS

Today was great as I connected with two other sketchers here in Doha, Mahmoud & Nasrin, and so there were 3 of us sketching in Souq Waqif, Doha. The majority of the sketching was done whilst sitting in cafés, although that was not an option when Mahmoud and I drew a sleeping porter. Here is my drawing and a photo of Mahmoud sketching.

Unfortunately, the others did not want to share their results today, but here are the rest of mine.

I had a fabulous day. Thank you Mahmoud & Nasrin.

Sue: Great job of showing the doorway and the street scenes. The atmosphere depicted is awesome.

Mahmoud did a great job of drawing a sleeping man.

I love the first tower like building sketch! What name is the building? It is gorgeous. I also love the blue door and the view from the café :thumbup:

Nice sketches with various subjects! From architecture to instant portrait, to street scene.
About the cafés... drawing from a café is perfect. You sit, sip and sketch, hehe.
I wish I had the chance to visit the city when I was around there but I only landed and departed through the airport.

Thanks Jiwaki. Maybe you can sketch here next time you pass through?

I'd like to, but my work in Oman finished, at least for now, so I have no plans to come by. But I will someday, inshaallah.

Good sketching; I especially liked the way you captured the warped doors, and their thin color washes.
