THURSDAY IN SATHORN – WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

I have been a bit busy sorting out things for my exhibition which I am going to set up tomorrow. This morning I decided to do a sketch from our last day in Bangkok.

We weren’t leaving until the afternoon and as we had held our room we took the boat up to the main riverboat and rapid transport terminal of Sathorn and walked around the streets and alleyways that surrounded the terminal.

The whole placed teemed with activity and industry from cafes to engineering workshops. You get the feel that the skyscrapers are slowly taking over and there were building sites with lorries squeezing into them delivering materials and everyone worked around each other, all quietly going their own way and all the time the highrises crept forward.

Other townscapes are available on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. once again Graham loving the depth you have in this picture, i sat looking at it for quite a while, even right at the bottom of the street things are happening, pictures like that must be applauded..

    • Thanks Steve. Just a few squiggles and lines and a bit of scratching out and you can get things appearing to be happening. Then put something more detailed in the front and it makes it more believable. Just dropping colour into the darks under the nearest canopy gave the area a feeling of activity.
