Paddleboard in the city

Here's a close up of the second work, done in colored charcoal. Had to rework it today to bring out the colors and the whites but it really made me smile to see it come alive again. Wouldn't it be great if we could just paddleboard our way to work everyday?#lifegoals #sup #drawing #charcoal #dailycommute #paddleboard

Bananas

Can you name at least 5 varieties of bananas grown in the Philippines? The most nutritious one is the saba, which is boiled, prepared with sugar syrup on ice or deep fried and served like barbecue on a stick.  For me, the best is still to eat it as is, raw and healthy!BananasGraphite on Paper9x12 inches2013For sale at Php500.#banana #pencil #drawing
