Scooter Girl in Polanco

Plenty people going around on scooters. I probably would do the same as traffic during rush hour is quite terrible. At least then you have a chance to make your way through.

I once made the mistake to take a cab when it started raining during rush our, which made the traffic pretty much come to a total stand still. It took us 20 min to cover about 300 metres, but for some reason I was also too lazy to get out of the car.

I have to admit I really did not pay attention to detail while doing the perspective and background on this one. I was watching a movie. So the lines are all over the place.

Rainy Day at the Mercado II

Rainy afternoon on market day in Malinalco. It was rather empty that day, as there was heavy downpour on an off. Even the dogs were looking for shelter under the tarpaulins that covered the market stalls.

Rainy Days II

Rainy days… inspired by the frist rainy day illustration and perhaps you can call it a modern ballerina version of Mary Poppins´ umbrella scene. I´m not sure why I suddely remembered Mary Poppins, as it has been years since I saw the movie or listened to the story. I had the audio tape when I was little and would listen to it over and over again.

Rainy Days

Actually I did this prompt for #WorldWatercolorMonth before the pelican pictures. But it was simply too sunny and nice for a change, to be reminded of the rain. So now that the rain is back, it is also back to the rainy days. This is how I feel.

I think it´s nice to hang upside down every once in a while. There is actually an aerialist who performs on a giant umbrella instead of an aerial hoop. That is where the inspiration came from for this illustration.

Rainy day at the mercado in Malinalco

Just as the title says, it rained that day. The rainy season started slowly at the beginning of May, so the sunny days were interrupted by several showers. I loved going there because of the amazing variety of tasty fruit and vegetables.

What´s your favourite thing about markets?
