 :doh: You've just reminded me of one other thing I must look for! A sketchbook suitable of w/c. The ones I have turn into a mess....not meant for water. Thanks Gita.

I must remember to bring out my water soluble graphite pencils as well, would certainly speed up the sketching process. I'm going to have to start carrying you in my backpack to remind me what to bring!  :2funny:

Love your w/c sketch of the flowers. I have collected quite a few floral photographs this trip. I'll be sure to put some up for you.  O0

Patricia, thank you! Are you well again? You must be since I saw your beautiful drawing of the butterfly!👏🏻
Val, that's funny....😂. I cannot think of travelling without all my painting stuff anymore. Saves me time in searching for art shops. Do post your sketches. 😎

Nice work, Gita.

Your work really inspired me to try line and wash.  So glad I did.

Thanks.

Thanks Mea, Teresa.
Mea, I am going to use aquarell Black for line wash since the colour can be lifted off, something which is not possible with China ink.  :D

While waiting for the ferry drew this scene of a fishermen carrying fish from their boat to the roadside table where they sold the fish. Later on did the line wash. BTW, I forgot to mention, I am in Seychelles.

Any comments are welcome!  :D

These creatures are really impressive... Many people have this as a house pet. The pigeons are a lot smaller than the european ones.
