More sketches from Wat Suthat in Bangkok. Initially I wasn’t happy with the sketch of the Wat, but looking at it again I now think that it’s OK for a quick, cheerful capture of the wat. The second sketch of me painting the palm tree is another step in my attempt to put some people into my pictures. I’m not overly happy with either picture – but it’s all part of the learning. I need to find more patience so that I can make my paintings have greater contrast, I need to trust the light & mid tones more, and finally I need to get a vision of the picture in my mind before putting brush to paper.
