Day 31

“Rain and sun, Rue du Parc Royal”. Gouache on paper sketch.

This is my last day of the one month of  Painting a Day project. The results – the good thing: I put myself  under pressure to create a painting a day and I did and loved doing it.  The difficult thing: I put myself  under pressure to create a painting a day. From now on I continue, but probably a few times a week only. You can see my paintings for sale in my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/InkandTruffle

Day 30

“Road in Himalayas”.  Oil on gessoed paper.
Having spent 22 days in Nepal, doing Annapurna Circuit, I accumulate a lot of photos, which are now a pale reminder of all this sublime beauty of the mountains, as well as dirt, poverty, tiredness and altitude sickness, which one tends to gladly forget at the end of the trip.

Day 23

“Houses on River Kwai”

On our Eastern and Oriental Express train trip from Singapore to Bangkok, one of the stops was Kanchanaburi, at the famous Bridge where Burma Railway crosses the river Kwai. It is a lot of confusion about which bridge was used in a movie with the same name, but in any case the bridge is intersting and surroundings  are picturesque.Oil on gessoed paper, 6″x 4″
