Sketching in Goa, India, 2019
In February this year, I experienced India for the first time with a two-week stay in Calangute, Goa.
Naturally, I took my sketchbook, pencils, pens and my new set of Sakura Koi watercolours which I was keen to try out.
And, as I sat enjoying the sunshine and taking in the vibrant colours of this amazing country, I began documenting my experiences on paper.
For me, a particular highlight of the trip was an amazing day and night boat tour along the Chapora river, where I drew a series of quick sketches capturing the stunning buildings and scenery along the river bank.
Back in Calangute a few days later, I asked some of the beach sellers to pose for some portrait sketches which I then presented them with.
In the near future, I'll be working on a series of paintings inspired by my time there.
Have you been to India? I'd love to hear about your experiences! And, if you'd like me to produce a painting to remind you of your travels, don't hesitate to get in touch on the number below.
