I'm back from our family vacation to Thailand, my first visit to the Far East, and I'm totally charmed! Everything's very different there, even for me , living at the Middle East for the last 20 years. If I were needed to use graphic designer's terminology, I would say that this place got more contrasts and more saturation. There are most beautiful, calm, white-sand and turquoise-water beaches and busy, super-crowded streets, full of colors, smells and sounds. There are modern luxurious buildings and infrastructures, and people living in primitive sheds, as they used to live ages before. I know, two and a half weeks isn't enough to understand anything, but it's enough to charm me and to make me want to come back.
I'm not so good with words, lucky I have my Thai sketchbook to share with you, which I hope will show a bit this wonderful journey. I wish I could sketch all the time, unfortunately, I could mostly sketch at waiting times, but I'm happy with what I have.
We've spend two week on Koh Samui and Koh Phangan islands, enjoying its beaches and travelling across them a bit. Here are some sketches from beautiful beaches :
Meanwhile you can see my entire Thai sketchbook on flickr.
