Sketching Ubud - timeless

No 46, Ananda Cottages, Ubud, Bali
8.5" x 11.5" pencil in Daler Rowney sketchbook
copyright Katherine Tyrrell

Just saw again this nice drawing from well-known 'Traveler with a Sketchbook' Katherine Tyrrell. She is making marks with pencils, pen and ink. The sketch at the top of this post her room in Ubud's own Ananda Cottages in Ubud. Timeless, done at dusk - nearly 10 years ago.

Ananda Cottages sits in the outskirts of Ubud in middle of rice fields. Katherine notes the windows with no glass - only blinds........and the banana trees and palms right outside the window.

You can see more sketches from Katherine Tyrrell's two trips to Bali and Ubud on the Bali page of her website.

I took a look through some of the artist's sketches after seeing this one on your blog, and not only is the artwork amazing, but it really gives someone who has no familiarity with the place or the culture a very real glimpse into it. Absolutely fascinating.
