Getting in lost in Stone Town

I tried to find my way back to the market following the route my guide showed me the day before. At the same time I was checking in a map to follow the names of the streets. Not map helps you there. Very soon I realized that the narrow allies in Stone Town were like rivers, with buildings between it course and the the end all them end in the big see that is the market. In the many ways I follow I always found something interesting so getting lost was all the time a pleasant experience.

I cut a window in the title page to show a glimpse of the next one. Stephanie was teaching me calligraphy,

A trick to draw people is to start drawing an square and start adding people as they jump inside the painting..

  1. I saw your sketches on USK and had to see more. I have long admired your watercolors and in fact purchased a print a few years back as a fund raiser for USK. These are so lovely and make me want to travel somewhere exotic! Thanks for this glimpse into a place I may never get to travel to. I liked seeing it through your eyes!
