SketchCrawl#20 & Artober -- October 25, 2008
Today I combine my art's friend, Diahn, Artober sketching with World-wide SketchCrawl#20 right here in Bangkok.
I am not sure if anyone had done previous Sketchcrawl in Bangkok, Thailand before. At least I am the one who went solo here this time. The day started by I did some plein air sketching of the outside view of my neighborhood. Then I packed my sketching stuffs and getting in a cab for some down town adventure by Chraopraya River. The cab snaked through the neighborhood roads to one of the major pier on the west side of Bangkok, Pepsi pier. This pier is the place where all Pepsi products get distributed by giant ships to the northern part of the country. I wonder if Coke has the similar type pier but so far I heard of none. I sketched some parked Tuk Tuks at the pier entrance, then the pier. Then I hopped on the ferry to cross Chraopraya River but my art tote's strap malfunctioned and it was no longer fun to travel with both hands hauling the bag instead of carrying it. So I ended up sitting at the ferry pier of the otherside of the river to do some more sketching of the river leaping to downtown Bangkok. All in all it took about 2 hours of sketching. I had a lot of fun and thanks for looking at my results. This was my first SketchCrawl and I hope to join some more in the future.
