Buenos Aries


Another quick rooftop sketch just to keep the ball rolling, considering how irreligious I am (is that a word?) strange that churches keep appearing



The entrance to La Bocca

Buenos Aries

Been in the doldrums for a long while, finding it hard to paint and even harder to keep up the blog. Just back from a 10 day trip to Buenos Aries, a long long trip, but it has given me time to think about what I want to do and how I want to do it, and I realise once again that all I want to do is paint


This is a quick sketch I did from the balcony of my apartment, using ink and marker pens, the city is amazingly green and low rise , if that is the right way to describe it. There are very few tall buildings ,most are two story and every street is lined with trees, especially orange trees.



A couple dancing the Tango in the street in the Bocas region of the city, a great subject for some paintings.
