My son came to visit me and took some beautiful photos (you could see 2 of them a couple of days ago). I tried to sketch him in that brewery pub, but the beer blured my sight so it wasn’t very successful – even though he is recognizable…
Accidental First Class.
I was lucky enough that I had a double booking in Economy so they moved me to the First. Those jumbo seats are still in my head (not to mention the meals).
However, law of conservation of mass and energy (that said nothing comes at no cost) came to power soon enough – next flight of equal length I was stuck in the seat where I felt worse than if confined in plaster. Plus, they didn’t wake me for a meal… In average it was just fine (a bit on a down side since the worst part came last).
A temple in Patan square (the most beautiful square in Nepal). Two little figures at the botoom of the left page are 2 little friends of mine. I set at the porch of opposite temple and 3 curious kids (9, 10 an 11) approached to inspect my sketch. When they saw what I was doing two of them run into my viewfinder area and the third stayed to check the result. When they estimated I could have been through, they came to check and were sincerely thrilled that they found the way into my sketch! I proudly devote this one to them!
Quick sketch: 2 of many, many various beautiful temples in the Kathmandu central square… apart from doves and pigeons you can see a grat eagle flying over. Rather common scene over there… This was my ONLY free day (Saturday). They work 6 days a week and so did I…
Left: Sleepy lady on the opposite side of the plane. I somehow managed to get seats in exit area where there is more leg-room (as I’m 192 cm or 6’4″)
Right: Thrill-full flight over Nepal – wonderful terraces that cover ALL the mountains below 4000 m ASL (~12000 ft)…
My flight(s) to Nepal.
Even though it’s not far from it – it isn’t Tibet…
Lefthand side an Arab girl, 2 random guys and me reaching for something. Righthand side – sleepy plain Istambul-Doha.
The trip took over 24 hours with stops and I was too tired to draw.
Ink in pocket moley
Another one by my son whose portrait can be seen on the opened page. It was taken in beer brewery and you can see bubbles coming out of the book!
My moley collection by my son and his mighty EOS 7D camera.
I scaled it down a bit (hundredfold) and cut down a bit…
Eternal hunting grounds – watercolour.
(The photo is) even more out-of-focus but you can “get the idea”
