A window in the floor at a roof top bar

On a boat in Ha Long Bay, a one night cruise. The window was next to the bath and shower, this is the view from sitting on the loo. There were hundreds of boats in the bay but I'm pleased none of them were right next to us or I might have felt a little exposed. But cute window all the same with good view.

Other Art - Inspired by photos taken in Asia

This was a statue of a tiger. Watercolour and collage.
A street in Vietnam. Acrylic paints, painted in an abstract kind of way and not using the colours I saw. I'm not used to acrylics and I find doing small details hard to do compared with watercolours.
