It’s Sunday Sketchup time! Every Sunday I plan on putting up something I’ve drawn, in one form or another, on the blog. The content will be whatever has moved me during the previous week, and this may not always be travel-related.
Ever since Steph and I left on our trip, I’ve been slowly getting back to my roots in the fine arts. For years I was stuck behind a computer, working very little with my hands and even less outside of my office. As we’ve been moving around, the world has inspired me to concentrate on doing what I love, and what I love is to express my creativity. I love photography, and the blog has been a great outlet for that, but I also love to draw, and slowly getting back into the habit of sketching has been really enjoyable, so I thought I would share it with all of you!
About the Sketch
After a brief hiatus, Sunday Sketchup is back! We have been in Thailand for about two weeks now and our first week was spent in Bangkok just taking it easy and recharging. My level of inspiration was a bit low (not because of Thailand!) so I decided to give the sketches a pass for a week and let my creative battery recharge a bit. Well, things are feeling a lot more sorted now and life is back on track, and so my creative spirit has returned, so to speak.
This week I wanted to try a landscape. I haven’t really done a proper landscape in a long time, mostly limiting myself to architecture and little things, details, people, that sort of thing. Considering my relative lack of experience drawing things like this, I am fairly proud of the final drawing. It’s in my trademark Scribble Style™ so don’t get too close to the screen! This drawing is of the riverside in Ayutthaya, a town we really liked and found rather picturesque. Some of the wats were beautiful and in conjunction with the river made for a nice scene. I think I’ll try my hand at some more landscapes as time goes on, I liked drawing this one and feel like it turned out well enough that there is hope for future efforts.
Shameless plug: as always, I am available for commissioned work, not just drawings, but any sort of design or photography work you might want or need.
