Houtong, Taiwan [ Results]

Post by chiou » Sun Feb 28, 2010 3:03 pm

This was our first time participating in Sketch Crawl.
There were 7 people and we went to a small town, Houtong, in Taipei county.
Houtong used to be a coal mining city.

there is an abandoned house.

It's great to see more people over in Asia participating in the sketchcrawls, congratulations on the first of hopefully many chiou. You chose a good location, there must have been alot of interesting things to see in the mining town? I like the sketch of the abandoned house alot, and the gesture drawing of your fellow sketcher in the bottom picture.

Thank you, Shaolin7.
The mining town is a beautiful place and it's famous for a lot of cats living there.
Here are some pictures we took.

Great job for your first gathering. The results are fantastic. I especially love the old mining structure.

Wow, what an interesting location. I love all the little vignettes--the people, the vendors, all those cats...

Great sketches! Cool cats. Nice colours. Thanks for sharing the photos. The sketchcrawl forum is great for knowing other artists work but also to get a view of different places around the globe. I've never seen anywhere like this before. Thanks.
