About me...Sketching

Since I found Urbansketcher's site. Suddently it remains me of my childhood, back in 1975. When I was about 7 years old, my brother took me on his bike sketching arround the city. Normally on Sunday or a public holiday. He was a highschool's student. I was so familiar with pencil colour and drafting pen.
Some drawing contest we joined and we won some prices. And we collect many trophies.

I thought my brother would go to architecture school because his architectural drawings are so wonderful. He finally continued his study in Civil Engineering School... I was a little bit upset because I did not see him again sketching.

Regarding his busy activity of studying, finally he took me to a private painting class. Some time we go outdoor sketching too. We visited old city, birdmarket etc. It was fun talking to people when sketching.

I also remember the time when I joined exchange students program in Australia. I used to do lots and lots of sketches.

this is more than just a sketch ... this one has a great documentary value as well ... I love the atmosphere you capture here and the detail of that bamboo house is just great ... salam.

I love the way you coloring the leafs, the shadow and the highlight make the 3D effect of the tree become real. the texture, the different size of leafs show to us that this is not kind of an 'architectural tree'
