Gate to the Great Buddha


Bagua Mountain, Changhua Taiwan. This is my daily cardiovascular workout area. I have lost count of how many times I have walked these steps. Just beautiful, especially in the evening. It is also a nice refuge during the hot summer months because the temperature here can be as much as 5-7 degrees cooler than down in the city. Love it!


Market Day


Everyday is market day in Changhua. I could sketch this place one thousand times and every time would be different. It’s hustle and bustle to the nth degree. I love the energy and so many colors, smells and characters. Noodler’s Ahab flex pen with carbon black ink and watercolor in a Moleskine watercolor journal.

Morning Rain Showers


Early morning rain shower at Kending harbor, Taiwan. The Taiwanese love to paint their boats in bright blues, greens and yellows. I didn’t do the colors justice here, but I wanted to convey that rainy day feeling. Noodler’s Ahab flex pen with Noodler’s black ink in a Molskine watercolor journal. I first inked the drawing and then applied successive washes of watercolor.
