But since I haven't been that good at drawing landscapes (the leaves on the trees are too much of a bother to draw in detail) I took the time to take some shots I could sift through to post in my DA page:
It can't get any more rustic than this.
Needs a smidgen more burnt umber.
Jerald doing a balancing act
Can you hold that pose for an hour or so?
Ed with his masterpiece.
Gerry with his colored marker opus.
See that white blur in the middle? That's rain. Which in Spain falls mainly in the plains.
Good afternoons are made of recreations such as these.
Komikero's in attendance (Ed got cut out, sorry dude).
Lonely cat guarding the nets
We were joined sometime later by other Komikero's: Mylene Panagsagan and Jerald Dorado (had Reno Maniquis joined us, the "Thursday Comic Web Ring" gang would have been complete). Various groups of locals who were passing by stopped to watch us sketching and give us unsolicited opinions of our drawings. I dropped the sketching bit after a while and concentrated on getting some good shots with the camera. I missed a couple of opportunities because some of the subjects were conscious of having their picture taken and looked my way a lot. We decided to pack up and have an early dinner come 5:30 pm at the much heard of grillery, Sikat-Tuna. Seems like everyone swears by the Tuna Belly served in that place those of us who haven't been there decided to give it a try. Soon enough we were swearing by the belly too. P80.00 for a meal? That's a real steal of a deal! After that some of us took the tricycle for the bus station and start heading for home. There's another gathering being planned by the end of this month, a swimming party of sorts and though I would definitely like to go back there again I'm not sure I'd be able to. Probably next month or maybe May.
* UPDATE: You can see more pictures here at Gerry's and Ed's blog.
