A couple of days late and photobombed by David and Rachael who we’ll miss so much as we ready ourselves to leave KL.
I can’t do cars fast. More abstract foliage kind of works though.
The eyes are wrong as is much else. The daylight faded with another afternoon thunderstorm darkening the sky so again this is drawn quickly.
All I can say is I hope she forgives me.
This is a better attempt than several others. I can start to feel my eye and pencil working together. It was drawn fast whilst she finished a coffee. Bits of it work and others don’t.
A hot morning trying to find a place to sit and do a watercolour. I headed off into the wilds surrounding the lakes adjacent to the hotel, to where we’ve now relocated, only to be eaten alive by tiny mosquitos.
Instead, I moved to a coffee shop with outside seating and a view of the shaded road.
The canopy could be much darker if I was to try this again. The trouble with watercolour is that once it is too dark it is nearly always impossible to lighten. Here, I was a little cautious.
Mid morning cup of tea. Our Airbnb apartment block is to the right, behind us.
The courtyard of this lovely restaurant in downtown KL.
I’ve started to do quick pencil drawings of people in cafes. This one is from this afternoon as I had a cup of Teh Halia, a ginger tea, and a curry puff.
