I’ve been a bit quiet of late, mainly as I’ve been on a stupendous holiday! I’ve just returned after three weeks in the amazing Philippines, and I kept myself busy while there with a trusty moleskin sketchpad.
From the beautiful beaches of Mindoro, to the rice terraces in the Highlands, I tried to get a few sketches in. Mainly to draw as relaxation instead of working, but also to keep my hand in.
Batad rice terraces.
Palm trees. Lots and lots of palm trees.
Traditional Ifuagaon hut in the Highlands.
Some incredible ramshackle buildings in the area.
Jeepneys are the main source of transport in the country, a mutant extended form of the basic jeep. They also had elaborate decorations and some choice english phrases on them.
Tricycles are also ever present, noisy and stinky.
Three weeks was not enough to explore everywhere in the country, but that just means that some day I’ll have to get back there again. With a pencil and sketchpad in hand.
