A few sketches from my recent Far East travels

A few sketches from my recent travels to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam December 2013.  They were scribbled very rapidly using permanent pen while on guided tours and then some water colour wash added later in the day, usually while sitting in a cafe or by the swimming pool.

 For more about my trip see my blog 'Travels with my father'

One of the temple buildings at Ayutthaya - I loved the roofs

The long, thin format of these sketches is due to being drawn over 2 pages in a travel, moleskin sketchbook.  Each page is approx. postcard size.
