Watercolor on Handmade Paper
One of the things I loved living in Hong Kong, was you are centrally located to travel all over Asia. The airport is a breeze to get to from Central with the Airport Express train which departs from the IFC tower. You can even check your bags at the train terminal so you don’t have to do it at the airport! We went on a long weekend holiday to Phuket Thailand. My previous trip to Thailand was during the design phase of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, visiting Bangkok and Chang Mai for research. It was wonderful to see the beautiful beaches in the South. This sketch was done on the beach. There was a family that set up in an outdoor kitchen to serve lunch to the guests at the nearby hotel. The food was scrumptious. One of their little boys came over and talked to me while I was painting. He was so intrigued he kept touching the paint as I was putting it down. I have a little souvenir of his fingerprint on the sketch!
