Hello everyone, I traveled again. This time, I headed off to Bhutan. A Kingdom that once isolated itself from the rest of the world. One that lives compassionately and harmoniously with its environment; with an emphasis on happiness. The only negative carbon footprint country that is convicted enough to ban Tobacco, plastic bags and pesticides.. No hunting allowed by the way, only organic produce here. This isn't a dream or a fairy tale, this is Bhutan

Here are the product of my journey. enjoy !! (All stories can be found on my tumblr, I'm working on publishing all my travels and all feedback or advise are totally welcomed)

Wow, very nice! Reminds me of Sargents watercolors, he made a lot of them on his journeys and it's just so nice to look at.

I love your journal, especially the watercolor pages. They come alive for me. The vast green distant landscapes, gorgeous historic buildings and beautiful harmonies of that country leave me in awe. Fantastic work, especially the double spread watercolors. You even deliberately used drips in some of them and made it work, something I've never succeeded at. Wow.

Also I especially love how you used the greens, you got such great variety of greens and accenting with violet was perfect. Well done! Not just sketches, beautiful finished paintings!

Thank you everyone for the kind comments :) I have a great news to share. The travel agent that i went to Bhutan with noticed my work and ask if they can use it for their calendar. I ended up designing their calendar in exchange for a SPONSORED TRIP BACK TO PAINT BHUTAN !!!!!!!!
