On Friday I cycled to Makati to do my annual report at immigration (a bit too late this year) and on the way back stopped to sketch this (the church is “Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish”, Mandaluyong). I learnt a few lessons from this day: 1. Cycle more often (my bum hurt afterwards) 2. Head off earlier (by the time I was sketching it was noon and really hot) 3. Make sure my ink pen is full (it ran out after only a few lines…so I did the watercolour on the spot and most of the ink work at home) 4. Make sure my brush pen is working (I was using an old Pentel one and found it was blocked up…so I squished the water out into the palette and dipped the brush in that). Phew!
