Sketches from South America

Hello,

Here is the start of a series of sketches based on photos from South America. 5x7" watercolour and ink.



This is a giant soccer stadium in Rio. I think this might be the main stadium for the next World Cup match in 2014?


Cheers,

Neat sketches of the stadium. Cool if you are correct about the next World Cup.

Great start, this should be an interesting themed sketchbook! I love your clean clear washes of colour, very eyecatching.

Re: Sketches from South America

Great sketches EP! I love how you simplify and encapsulate so much visual info into a small number of brush and pen strokes. Very nice work.

Hi Viv,

Thanks. I think it's a piece of public art? I can't find info on it online. I must not be using the correct search terms. Here is a small photo of the structure.


Cheers,

Amazing structures. Like how you handled the one you showed a photo of. Did you go up those stairs and look around?

Interesting structures. I see that you are from California. You must have travelled a ways to get to South America. Nice to have a sketchbook to remember it by.

Debby and Michelle - thank you. I did not travel to South America. I'm working off photos from a family member. I'm compiling some sketches to give as a gift
