Sketches in Dhaka!

I have been on work in Bangladesh. Looking out of my hotel window I saw this cycle rickshaw parked below my window, and decided to do a sketch for the 20 min challenge! Bangladesh is known for its brightly coloured cycle rickshaws which makes them so different from the ones we have here. 20 min. paintings are such a great way to improve my skill....I am forced to concentrate on only whats essential and important, and stop fussing with colours!
 Sitting in my hotel room, really tired after tromping all over Bangladesh, over bad roads and awful traffic, miles of walking through villages, so much poverty,  I decided to paint to relax.. It was evening and the light falling on my hotel keys and the water glass, casting shadows, caught my eyes!

  1. The rickshaw looks very inviting with the colorful carriages. I can see a sense of relief in the glass with the keys sitting beside it. I hope you feel better now.
