More From Burma
I had really hoped to do a lot of sketching while I was in Burma, but I didn't end up doing as much as I would have liked. My mom arranged the trip and packed as many things in as possible, which was good, but when you are seeing lots of things in a short amount of time you don't really have the time to sit and draw. Tourist trips are much more photo opportunity oriented than fifteen minute sketch opportunity oriented. Which was too bad (wouldn't it be great if, instead of cameras, people whipped out little sketchpads?), but I did get some sketches in. Most of the sketches were done in blue pencil and then inked later.
