Sketching in Timor Leste a bus full of people
Sketching in Timor Leste a bus full of people: this is one of my sketching made while I was driving. I mean, I was always with my camera or my phone taking picture of interesting subjects. And I mean everything is interesting for people like me that is loving other cultures and places.
I’ve to be honest: this is a very common picture on my mind because it’s also a very common picture to see in all poor countries I was deployed, but especially in Africa where all the fantasies are coming reality. And since I’m sketching, I prefer to show my very personal sketches and not pictures.
So I took several pictures of this fascinating subject while I was in idle on the side of the street or stopped at the traffic light. Then I went to my room and I sketched this scene of people on the bus, more, spilling over the bus. I just let imagine how much people was inside in the bus (that is obviously without air conditioning) in a tropical weather where the air temperature is always far over 30°C and the humidity is always around 90%.
Here in Timor Leste I found several and very colorful bus. A rainbow of variation about the subject: different colors of the body, glamorous stickers sticked on the bus, different emptiness… I have to say that I’m love for this subject and so I shoot different picture on the matter and sketched some more.
For this sketching in my room I was in very good company: my faithful Lamy Safari with my lovely Platinum Carbon Ink and my foolproof watercolors Winsor & Newton Artists. And being in my room I used all my DaVinci brushes quite slowly.
What’s more… See you in the next post!
PS: I have more Lamy arriving on my desk and I think that soon I’d like to make one giveaway and probably one pen swap. Stay tuned.
