Klang, Malaysia (Results)

Post by ghoobist » Mon Aug 02, 2010 6:08 pm

Here are the results of our outing. There were 2 watercolourists, 1 ink sketcher and 2 photographers in our group. We started at the old train station in the town centre of Klang. A short walk up a small hill led us to this quiet park.

Image

We wondered why it was deserted on a nice Saturday morning. We soon discovered that the place was infested with AEDES mosquitoes. They seemed to take a particular liking to my blood. The other attendees also had a few bites that they could count, but mine were so numerous that they merged and became a huge grotesque lump.

I fled the park and found some steps overlooking this Lady of Lourdes church.

Image

We took a short walk past Little India (where the smell of incense tickled our nostrils and Bollywood music made our pulse jump to its beat) and eventually settled ourselves down to draw this Muslim mosque.

Image

This Hindu temple stood from across from the mosque. I had the opportunity to witness a prayer session taking place inside the temple and was introduced to the various Gods as a Hindu devotee poured milk to bath the idols.

Image

And here are some quintessential sketches of people to complete the day :)

Malaysia provides some great opportunities for sketching, but I've got to admit, the humidity and mosquitoes can be a lethal combination! I think I'll propose somewhere cool with air conditioning next time :P

Wow! Some really nice work here. I love all the lost edges. You really captured the effect of the bright sunlight well. So inspiring!

zomg! Your wonderful technique of hitting just the darks seems to really pay off when drawing the hot climes of Malaysia! I especially love the temples/churches this time round, you've hinted at all the intricate details beautifully.

Hope things are going well for you out there, and btw, you've been neglecting your blog! ;)

Ghoobist, great drawings and choices in subject matter! Nice variety on each page.

It looks like there's a wonderful melting pot of culture in your city. I think I'll have to visit one day....

Thanks guys! It's actually quite fun just drawing shadows on a sunny day :)

Thek, you're like the only person who visits my blog! Hahaa, but thanks for the kick in the butt. I've just been really busy these last few months.

Really like your sketches very much - the light comes out of the left out spaces between the black lines, i can almost feel the heat and smell the exotic perfume in the air. Thanks for sharing your work!! :wave:

Here are a couple of Cha Hui's watercolour paintings. He hasn't got a sketchcrawl account yet, so I'll help him post these for now.
