Sunday afternoon at the ACM


Last Sunday, the threat of rain encouraged me to look for an indoor drawing venue. So I visited the Asian Civilisations Museum and decided to sketch at the special exhibit on "Sumatra - Isle of Gold". For over 2 hours I drew in their exhibition gallery - an amazing collection of ancestor sculptures, bead work, gold jewelry, keris and tradional Sumatran architecture. Here are the results, drawn in subdued lighting - sort of like our night sketching on Rangoon Road again! My apologies to the stone figure on the right for balancing the keris on his head!
