In February 2007 I had my first opportunity to sketch in a far-off land, Thailand. This was my first visit to the tropics and I was intrigued by the tropical plants and architecture and charmed by the people. Using a variety of coloured pens I sketched from life. Then upon returning home I completed the book with watercolour sketches based on my photographs.
