Back home after a long trip, it always takes me a while to get back into my groove. So, rather than leaving the memories behind, I'm going to try to use some of my sketches as the foundation for more finished works. My goal is to do five, but I'll probably get distracted by something else in no time. So, we'll see how it goes!
This one was a sketch of overhead wires (I wanted to call this The Power Lines, but I'm not sure they're all power - they could be telephone, internet, TV?) on a street in Nara, Japan. I know, I know, so much beauty and history all around me, and what do I choose to sketch? I can't help what I find interesting! Done while standing on a street corner for 10 minutes before heading back to the bus station for our coach to Kansai airport! (The bus trip was so much more relaxing than taking the train!)
I was happier with the plain grey one.
Will I try another style? I could do a Marc Taro Holmes direct watercolour version? Well, there's an idea now.
