Myeik, Myanmar. Street View

A3 charcoal on paper.

A street in Myeik, a city in an isolated province of Myanmar.

I spent a year there, largely by accident.

I haven’t drawn much for 25 years and am getting back into a flow of using charcoal plus, crucially, practicing often.

The picture is ok but due to a small planning error the motorbike on the left is sightly too high so, perspective-wise would be huge in reality.

More pictures soon in any case.

  1. Very good, young(?) Ron.

    You could have got away with the fella on the motorbike by claiming it was a person on horseback, or even a motorcyclist pulling a wheelie…

  2. Do I sound young?

    You don’t get this much pain and sourness except by hard-fought experience.

    Or I could just have tattoos obviously. That seems to look like suffering

    • Well ‘they’ do say 40 is the new 30… so I guess that makes 50 the new 40?

      Yep, the cynicism and bitterness etc are signs of old-ish age…

      Tattoos? Don’t get me started on them – call me old fashioned, but I always remember them being for sailors or jailbirds…
