I really wish I had done this sketch on location but that was impossible because I had my family with me and I wouldn’t want them to be stucked with me at one place for few hours just to wait for me to finish. I opt for drawing from photograph instead. I hope I will be able to draw on location next time when I go solo travel. 🙂
