Below are some of my drawings from a figure drawing session on the weekend of July 9 and July 10. It was wonderful to drawing from the figure again and to drawing on a large scale again.

Here are some drawings I made while in Singapore.
This is Singapore on the night we arrived.
This is a cafe called Real Food in the basement of a food court that quickly became our "home base".
Next day, we went to a Filipino barbeque at an American ex-pat's place. It was lovely.
Apparently, there was a domestic servant locked out on the balcony while the family that he worked for went on vacation. When he tried to escape by climbing down, the neighbor saw him and called the police. As the escapee was stuck on the balcony for a very long time, it is a very sad story.
Here was a Hindu temple drawn on a very cloudy, hot/humid day.
Next day was spent at Arab Street.
Chinatown station had a nice building overlooking the street with the metro station. There were beautiful azaleas, and it was temperate under the awning, especially in the morning.
Both of the images above are from Little India. The colors were amazing.
Here was an old colonial British church, drawn from the National Library. I drew with someone from the Urban Sketchers there, a lovely man, Tony.
Here is a drawing of Bamboo at the Botanical Gardens. It was very lush.
This is from the Orchid section of the Botanical Gardens.
Last sunrise in Singapore. Good bye. I will miss you.
