architecture in Kuching

While most sketchers draw what they see; there are times when we draw what we see in our mind's eye. As an architect, this is what i do at work, it is a easier process for me as I am trained to do this while drawing what is in front of me is at times harder. Probably because you can't cheat and fudge the lines.
This is a sketch of a building done some years ago; for a building along one of Kuching's more prominent roads. The building is close to completion now; we have managed to keep it quite true to its original form and intent. I am pleased with the result.

Church in Port Moresby

This is a Roman Catholic church in Port Moresby; it is interesting to note that local cultural symbols have been incorporated into the typical elements of a church building. I feel that it adds colour; as do the local people - who attend church in the same carefree manner thay appear to embrace their daily life. They worship outside on the lawn in the weak winter sunshine; colourful in their attire and mannerism.
