Shanghai sketches 1

Some oil pastel sketches from the first few days in China, in Shanghai. I used a tiny Chinese A6 journal, with hemp/bamboo pages, and clumpy oil pastels - not only clumpy but cheap, poor quality ones that I think are about 20 years old. BUT I found this unexpectedly liberating as I had to be bold in a small space and had no fear of wasting expensive materials.
