On my way to vacation. Had made a fast sketch and wasn't too happy with the result. So sorry to remove it. Will post again.  :smiley6600:

I have a number I'm not particularly happy with this trip, but they are just sketches done quickly. I figure as long as I know what they are about, they will be just fine for a base for painting later on when I get back. You'll be seeing a few of these sketches before long....as soon as I find that blasted cord. Always leave something behind!  :doh:

So Exciting!!!!  :yippee:     

No art shops yet... kind of like being on a scavenger hunt!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

A sketch is just a sketch and not supposed to be a final work of art ;)

I was directing this more to Gita - having removed the sketch.
Take a good look at Cyril's pen and ink sketches and see what I mean. Some very rough but very beautiful, and he is not afraid of posting them. This is what gives inspiration to those who are just starting their life as an artist.
In other words, making mistakes and rough work is all part of the game.

Thanks for the suggestion Dennis. Have done other sketches. The first one which I removed was of a famous mosque and one tower was too slanted. Did not want to offend anybody. Have to wait to get a good internet connection to post. At present on a nature vacation.  But have lots of inspirational scenes around me. Can't wait to post.

Thank you Dennis, Val, Mea, Win, Cyril.
Dennis, I am painting in a sketchbook, 300 g/m2.

The flowers here are so beautiful. Actually, I would like to paint all flowers 🤗
