LATEST PIECE - Original Pen and Ink line drawing of An Phu District 2 in HCMC.
Title - “River boats around the Thao Dien Bubble”
Showing in detail the rapidly developing district 2 area of aka An Phu / Thao Dien Village.
In the space of almost 150 years the area has gone from banana and coconut plantations to be reclaimed by man and developed into the mainly expat inhabited location we see today.
This particular drawing is very important in the continuing development of my sketching ability, in that I am turning my technique more towards the original inspiration for my excuse to draw the city from the highest points. That inspiration is an etching made in 1881 showing the exact same street plan that exists today, all be it with less original buildings still standing, the technique has always baffled me. The challenge to myself is to overcome the largest paper format I can find and fill it with the finest pen I can find, with the largest city scape view I can scale down onto the paper.
