Kiah Kiean, Siriluck Uncharoen and Angkor Wat

Sometimes drawings by other Urban Sketchers really get me going. I get inspired by their sketches and most of all by their process. When that happens I grab my sketchbook and start copying their process. It is not about copying their work, but to understand someone's process I study their sketches...
