Long time again... thanks for hosting the thread as always, Shirl.
E-J, it is so nice to see your works here again. Great crab! Here we have many crabs in local market and your work makes me try them (for eating and painting both
) Looking forward to the underside and experiment.
thopolis, nice lovely sketch. I like the colour. Looking forward to the nest step.
Well, here are some of my sketches in this month. I also sketched a lot last month so I'll post them somewhere if I have a chance.
The 1st of June was my younger son's third birthday. Currently he is in Japan so I celebrated his birthday over FaceTime, a kind of internet video talk. I captured some images that time and I referred to one of them. Sennelier, Cray-pas specialists and neopastel on a pastel paper.
Small aubergine that is probably indigenous to Southeast Asia. I used them for cooking ratatouille. Sennelier and Cray-Pas specialist on a cheap sketchbook.
A hat from a local market in Bangkok. I realised that my had was for winter and I needed to have a summer one here! Sennelier and Cray-Pas on a sketchpad.
Bananas and rambutans on a plate. I love tropical fruits here.

A fan from a museum. Maybe it was made for a kind of event last year. Sennelier and neopastel

This is a specimen of a Caribbean gastropod shell (queen conch). It produces a conch pearl. Sennelier, Cray-Pas and neopastel were used on a pastel paper.
Another shell specimen of Indian volute from SE Asia. It produces melo pearls. Sennelier, Cray-Pas and neopastel on a pastel paper.
Thanks for looking.
