Lamma Island Hong Kong [RESULTS]

Post by rozkeep » Mon Mar 01, 2010 4:21 am

We had a great sketch crawl in Lamma Island Hong Kong. This is an island with no cars, 25 mins from the city. There are cafes, beaches, and lots of great hiking trails. Many people choose to live here for its quiet friendly lifestyle. This is a new group who have only been sketching for a few weeks. Please leave your encouraging comments and watch for more uplaods. There are two young students who couldn`t make the SC but who did good drawings on Monday.
Thanks everyone and by the way we are really enjoying looking at all the world wide results. Go sketchers!

Mandy. A view of a typical Lamma house.

Great job, everyone. I absolutely love the use of shadow in the fourth sketch.

I have added more work to this forum. Please take a look!

Thanks for the encouraging feed back.
We are enjoying looking at the world wide sketchers work so much. What a buzz!
Sketch Crawl could make a cool book someday. A day in the life of planet Earth as seen through the eyes of its sketchers.

thanks again everyone. Power to your pens and paintbrushes!

As a former HK-er I really feel like I'm back there! I can almost smell the seafood!

Great sketches all!
