Chinese sketchbook / People

You know, I usually don’t work on professional sketchbooks. I’ve used to work on general notebooks which are named as sketchbooks in my country. So, I am sometimes even not satisfied with other kinds of common sketchbooks.

I found this Chinese notebook in a shop in Isfahan, and they were selling it not as a sketchbook. 

But when I touched it’s papers, I realized that it may be ideal for my charcoal and graphite drawing.
Although the papers were so thin that I couldn’t work on both sides of the papers, but drawing on it specially when my subjects were people, was a delightful experience.

Sketching the elderly is always simpler and easier for me, especially in my territory. I have more confidence and Sincerity when I try this lovely subject. Also drawing at night eliminates some details and makes it easier. I invite you to see the result.

The women were chatting..


Working on the middle of the sketchbook was hard.

Playing with Light and Shadow in Singapore

Playing with Light and Shadow.
It was my workshop title in Singapore.
The 6th International Urban Sketchers Symposium / Singapore. July 22‑25, 2015

But first, I wanted to share some sketches from workshop R by Suhita Shirodkar:

Thank you Suhita.
I did also some other sketches in Waterloo street. These are two of them.

I had this chance to see and sketch some beauties of Singapore early in the morning:


And I also participated in Asnee Tesna Activity:
I took some photos of the beautiful places that we saw. Very happy to meet Asnee and learnt a lot. This is a quick sketch during that activity.
