Day 076 – Sundial in Global City

ACE.076-sundial in global city 160617-2

I biked to the mall this morning and decided to stop and sketch this sculpture, which I used to see every day when I was driving to work. It’s called “Kasaysayan Bawat Oras” and is by Juan Sajid de Leon Imao. Google translates this as History Hourly and I gather the dancing figures are supposed to represent 7,100 islands of the Philippines. In the process of sketching I got soaked by the lawn sprinklers, which apart from soaking my watercolour pencils, was kind of pleasant and cooling! The drawing was done in charcoal, pencil, watercolour, ink and watercolour pencils.


  1. You’ll have to go back whenever you want a wet on wet technique. Got to plan ahead for those sprinklers! Fabulous drawing. The dial in the right corner looks like something that would be fascinating to feature close up.
