More From Lahore

23 Apr

elephant 1Here’s a little sketch I did in Lahore at the weekend. We’d gone to visit the old part of the city and ended up at Cooco’s Den, a famous restaurant in the red light district. It’s at the top of an old brothel and is decorated with masses of carvings, old and new, stained glass and artefacts. It’s one of a kind. I sketched just a tiny fragment of the place, a large wooden elephant, carved and standing in amongst the old hammered beams. I’m thinking of turning it into a drypoint. Drawn into my little spotty A6 sketchbook with Faber Castell Pitt pens, sizes S and F.

    Have you seen the movie Moulin Rouge? Red light and elephants, too! Curious.

      oooh yes, hadn’t occurred to me but now you mention it…… Was in Montmartre last year and passed the Moulin Rouge and the elephants were still there.

        You are having an amazing trip. Good for you. I wonder how it will affect your art over the coming years.

        All the ingredients have gone into my head, they are mixing around at the moment. I expect some creative cakes to emerge over the coming weeks 😀
