Thai architecture is as decorative outside as it is on the inside. I find it very hard to capture… and in frustration stopped drawing this sketch. Yet, upon later inspection it did seem to communicate something about their style.
Drawn in my 5×8″ Canson sketchbook in pen and ink, while on a tour in Bangkok. ;-)))
Early 2015 loaded this sketch to all the RB Products.

A persona who has apparently lived a relatively long, varied and eclectic life. My Red Bubble portfolios reflect my seeming persona… and IF there’s any veracity to these reflections then some sense of HUMOUR and enjoyment should be PRESENT!
‘Ola!’ ;~}}}

    very nice line work

  • Thanks… for being right here with me. Even though I drew this a few years ago I sense if I started a similar drawing today… in the heat and humidity of Bangkok… I’d probably run out of ‘steam’ as I did on this one…. no one ever said ART was always comfortable!!!

    ohh what patience you myct have……….its still a lovely piece……

  • I’m not sure it’s ‘patience’… maybe an addiction to an acceptable outcome. I don’t like leaving drawings incomplete… anymore than I like leaving good food on my plate!!! hahahaaa
    thank you for your conyinued kind comments!!!
