Schoolchildren at the Wat Trimitr temple in Bangkok. The monks were telling them to leave the artist alone to work – thankfully the children had trouble listening to them and came running over to see what I was doing. Such sweet faces! Drawn on location with pen and ink and watercolor.
The Chao Phraya river in Bangkok is a main transportation route through the city. The hustle along the river matches the street vibe – you hear the constant blowing of whistles as the commuter boats are navigated into the ports, and the people jockey for positions. Drawn on location with pen and ink and pastel.
