Although I am now back from Bali, I still have some more drawings that I want to do in my journal. I had a great time there, relaxing and so beautiful. I really like the Balinese they are very welcoming and have a great sense of humour.
One of the things that I enjoyed in our stay in Ubud was having breakfast in the outdoor restaurant overlooking the rice fields and watching flocks of little birds feasting on the just ripening grain. It took us ages to find out what they were as there were two different colourings of the same bird. So here is a drawing of a cinnamon munia, but there were also ones that were dark chestnut and cream.
The gardens at the resort were beautiful and these following two drawings were at the resort. There were loads of heleconias, one of my favourite group of flowers as they are so architectural. I have seen some of them in florists, but this is the first time I had seen them growing, truly bizarre shapes.
The first drawing in the post is of a doorway leading up to on of the villas at the resort, they had different doorways for some of the villas. The carving and colours were just so beautiful I had to draw one.
