My nephew asked me if I had ever done any paintings of "houses on stilts" , and I remembered doing this sketch while I was in Thailand. This was quickly done from a moving vehicle (hence the moving vehicle lines) . People often ask what pens I like to use, and the answer is: the free ones at my bank. This is ink and watercolor on paper, 5 X 8.25. I love Moleskine sketchbooks for many reasons- one of them is that the paper is nice enough to paint on.
