I was at a local Las Vegas’ casino outside of the Strip, called Texas Station Casino. While waiting for my mother finish playing her machine, I decided to do a watercolour sketch of the video slots nearby…
latest updates: casino
Sketching at one of the local casino’s Race and Sportsbook, yep.. The place where you can bet on teams to win money.. I never done it before and I not familiar with the betting structure…
The game that was on tv, which I wasn’t really paying much attention to (I was too busy on sketching) the game. The game was Colorado Avalanche vs. Edmonton Oilers.. And the Oilers won at the end..
This done with ballpoint pen, watercolours pencil, and water brush..
The April 2010 Challenge: Wish you were here
Well, I highly wouldn’t encourage you to be here.. But, I don’t have much choice for this kind of theme..
Vegas Style- At least this is an opportunity to do some sketching on people playing the slots.. I’m sure you don’t get this very often unless if you visit the few major gambling hubs like Biloxi/Gulfport, Mississippi; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Reno, Nevada; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Las Vegas, Nevada…
Other than that… It is very lifeless living here when you are a local.. There is no culture, no art inspirations, no museums. Its a big brown desert wasteland with dull-looking mountains and just right in the middle of nowhere, while the better cities (Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, and San Francisco) nearby are 5-8 hours drive. Oh, it just depressing while there are no greens and lovely trees you could try sketching/painting…
Alright, I’ll stop rambling on… lol I’m sure you will get the point..
I was in Paris Hotel and Casino while I was walking down on the Strip from a Trade Show to get a lunch break. I do not know why, but I had a sudden urge to get something French for lunch (a lunch Crepe) and start drawing something… “Frenchy.” As for the translation on the bottom of the page: “De Paris faux avec amour!” means “From fake Paris with love.” Oh, I’m sure you can figure out what “Les Toilettes” means…
I work as a security officer at a casino. Things can be boring at times. I did this sketch while posted at an unlocked building. This is a birds eye view of some of the administrative buildings that could see from where I was standing.
