Fly Fishing

Today’s SketchDaily prompt was Fly Fishing.
I saw a photo of a 19th century artificial fly, so I drew it.

My notes pertain to solutions to problems that I encountered while creating the sketch.

Watercolor pencils and gel pen.



Since I arrived in Canada, I haven’t gone back to the Philippines. Not even to visit. Lately, I find myself looking at a distance and imagining the sights, tastes, smells and sounds of what my life used to be. I know a lot has changed in my hometown since I left. I’ve changed too.

Alaala (ala-ala) is the Tagalog word for “memory”.

This week’s playlist has some of the songs that I really loved on Philippine radio, before I left 5 years ago.
