Afghanistan 9


R0013496

TV Hill, Kabul. Watercolour and pen 8"x12"

I did a pencil sketch in a taxi with colour notes in pencil,and then painted it up as a demonstration to a group of students some days later. I was trying to illustrate another way of painting outdoors. Quick sketch, colour notes, and then work on it from memory as soon as possible.  Also I was trying to suggest the pale dust and pollution haze that pervades the city so much of the time. TV hill can be seen in the background of today’s news footage of the tragic killing of UN workers and Afghan nationals in this area.
