Scanned straight out of my Canson sketchbook is another pen and ink drawing from Thailands Ton Sai Beach. I suspect I ended up with so many drawings from here because the only way in and out was by ‘longtail’ boat… and a primary activity was learning to scale the surrounding cliffs… no longer a valid activity for me. All the young folks looked a bit wearily at us oldsters… and after a few days… and sketches… we moved on. (thank goodness, too… since the 2004 tsunami came three days later… though reports said his beach wasn’t that affected!)
NOW in 2012 I’m back in Thailand and on its fabulous beachs!

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!

    great in a different style too

  • I can’t SEE the difference in ‘style’… but maybe it was the food I ate on this beach… it wasn’t very good if I remember correctly! ;-)))

  • thanks for the acceptance… though I reside most of the time in paradise… often my images of it are not taken for it… AH… but that of course reflects one of the great paradoxes of humanity!
