Sketching in Ko Lanta!

Naeeda and David's present for Viveck's retirement has been this amazing week in Ko Lanta in Thailand, a wonderful sea side resort. We had our own little self catering cottage over looking the sea, from a cliff! Of course a painters paradise! The interesting thing was that every day the colours of the sea and the sky, the lights of the sun, changed, possibly because the rainy season is starting and the storms were so dramatic! Just a few photographs.....

And my sketches. Wonderful to paint plain aire too....I get so little opportunity normally! These are of Kantiang bay, the bay that was 'ours'! Our cottage overlooked the bay and I loved painting the views! The black rocks are basalt rocks according to my geologist daughter!
