Bangmod canal




This is a life sketch. Ink was done at the scene, the back row of my village overlooking the rustic corner of Bangmod canal, the area once famous for a special kind of tangerine and coconut orchards. I later added watercolor at my home. We are very lucky to get to live in the area that is so green. More home/land development is coming in the area so the green quiet orchard will soon be forever gone. I am glad I get to sketch part of this charming community.

Beautiful watercolour Ai. Such a shame they will develop here, but at least you have a lovely record of it as it was.

Thank you very much Sue. I hope one day I can set a foot in Italy and record some of the scenes there too and hopefully sketching with you.
