Oh it would be nice to get lost on the streets of Georgetown! ;-)
I'm sure it's lovely especially at night with all the lights!
These are very pretty sketches!

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Very interesting YS. The sketches are very emphatic. I like them.

Lynn said...

Your beautifully done sketches remind me a bit of the photos I took recently in Locke, CA. The closeness of the buildings to one another...the paths, narrow streets...Yours are so well done.

Hi Yoon see,
I like the evidence of life - the bike the scooter and the power lines delivering electricity and phone services BUT also the absence of life - no people...

baincardin said...

Owl Eng said...

Julie said...

The second one is awesome! I love the interesting details...you can see the life living there!

It is my pleasure to be given a chance to see your superb sketches and drive me of thinking of getting the pencil to begin to do the sketches I was in love with at one time. Lately, I saw my eldest son spent about 11 hours to come up the sketch of the British Clock Tower. I have too many interests and always find no time to cope up with all these interests and hobbies.
Keep it up your good work so as to enrich life.

Thanks Cherry, I hope to get lost with you not just in Georgetown street but also New York street......and around the world!

Thanks Lisa, I have the same feel where strange empathy between the top and bottom sketches, making a great connection of the main street & back street.....

Thanks Lynn, I am happy that they brought back many sweet memories to you. I hope you can come to Malaysia to feel the closeness one day. I am most happy to be your travel guide:)

Thanks Diana Evans, I am glad that you love them, they are your another new discoveries just like the great posts that I discovered on your blog:)

Thanks Teri C, the second piece does have has a great attraction to attention!

Thanks Donna, I beleive the lines has got value, volume, height too.....they are just miracally beautiful!

Thanks Delwyn for mentioning so many great little detials in. It's about life, so the stories are great sometimes with the absence of life.

Thanks bain for your kind compliment, I am your great fan too. You are the king in photography!

Thanks Owl Eng, I am sure you can do better me, you are so good at sketching. May I suggest you to do some sketches of Singapore and JB too:)

Thanks Julie, it comes alive with your chosen piece!

Thanks James Oh, thanks for dropping by and giving encouraging comment. I am sure if your will is there and you really plan forward of making it happen, it will happen. Good luck to you to pick up your long lost interest and embark into a new chapter of your life, making art speaks not just to you and to your friends around. I will be back to be part of your friends supporting you and seeing flower blossoms:)

Happy Wednesday to you too, Ilove your new blog and these drawings are fantastic, you are so talented. My computer has blown up so I'm out of action on my blog for a while until I get my new computer up & running properly!

I especially like the bottom one. I can imagine the sights, sounds and scents I might encounter. I admire folks who can illustrate like this.

Dot said...

those are really neat sketches!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I don't know exactly why I do so many robots... Mostly because they are just fun to draw, and there are no real rules!

Gerald said...

Wow! The process was wonderful. It's nice to see in the eyes of an architect.

ValGalArt said...

Thanks Nicky,
You are talented too. I always enjoy browsing through your current and old entries.
Take care and thank you for dropping by. I hope that your new computer is working and everthing will be back in order.

Get Zapped,
I am glad that you can imagine it, feel it, sense it...
It's like you are in the middle of Georgetown street now, exploring the beauty of these buildings and surrounding.
Thanks for your admiration:)

Dot,
Thanks sure and my lecturer at that time need the neatest sketches possible. She would reject those sketches not to the sllyabus's expectation....which means redo.
Very luckily, I spent quality times to produce quality sketches.
I had a great time sketching and I am going to start it again!


Gerald,
You are right Gerald.
It's great to walk thru the process with love and pain sometimes and the end result was so good & satisfying!

ValGalart,
I am so thrilled when you mentioned you love these. Making me like a star...He..He..

Eric, great line work always are fascinating!

Asja,
thanks and you made my day:)
