Woyww -almost back to a routine


After a wonderfully relaxing holiday in Vietnam I am almost back in the woyww routine. This post is a little loaded with pics of my sketchbook journal pages from the holiday.  Promise to only show 4 pages of my sketchbook which hopefully will give you a glimpse of wonderful Vietnam.  Firstly, beautiful lotus flowers and leaves.  The country was so lush and green with beautiful gardens and trees everywhere.

Quick fun sketch of Ha Noi city streets in the old quarter.  I got the city sketch idea from a brochure but what I missed drawing is the electrical wires that would criss cross all over the page.

The landscape was full of paddy fields/terraces, lakes and mountains.

 Wherever you went there would be a variety of animals but I was quite taken with poultry.  Normally I am the tourist patting the cats but this time I was taken with the chickens who knew not to cross the  busy roads if they wanted to live another day.

Taking a  sketchbook on holidays was new and definitely something I will do again.  A lovely way to stop and really make you look at the country you are visiting.

Have a lovely woyww.
