I just got back this morning from a month of plein air painting in Bagan, Myanmar. The trip was very productive and I managed to paint almost 40 sketches in 28 days. Everything is still packed up in the studio but I’ll put some of the work up when after I’ve polished it up. In the meantime here are some images of the trip.

You can see all the posts on the Myanmar trip here.

A much better way to move around in 35°C heat.
