I had been in Bangkok a few days and I had a couple hours to kill so I asked the cab driver to take me anywhere nice. I had no idea where I was going or where I ended up at the time but he dropped me off in what looked like a bustling shopping area. I looked across the street and saw an insane amount of people as well as electric/phone cables so I just pointed my camera and snapped a quick photo.
Little did I know, I was taking a painting class years later and my teacher told me to paint something from a photograph I took myself. I had no clue where to start so I looked through my Instagram. The instructor spotted this photo and encouraged me to give it a try. This painting is a result of that, and I’m so glad she pushed me to try something I probably never would have otherwise.
