Kanagawa, Japan [RESULT]

Postby kumi matsukawa » Sat Oct 16, 2010 5:14 pm

Hi there!
This time I went to Oktober Fest at Akarenga, Yokohama.
http://www.yokohama-akarenga.jp/oktoberfest2010/
As many of you may know, this event originates from Munich, Germany. Unlike the authentic festival in Munich, the scale is small, yet there were many people who came to enjoy the feel of festive atmosphere and genuine German beer as well as local beer and food.
Unfortunately, this time I had solo sketchcrawl, but thanks to the magic of beer and sketch, I had no difficulty having nice company. People came and gather to have fun. So strangers became friends easily.

On my way back to home, I drew this in the train. I was bold enough to spread my sketch tool on my lap.

Great results Kumi. :thumbup:
I'm glad you found people to talk to even though you were sketching alone.

I quite like when you write "my second beer". Did you find any improvement in your drawing from the first beer to the second?

Kumi,
especially liked your scene in the train, a lovely loose impression and use of colours

thetaranakisketchers - Thank you very much! that was a 5th drawing of the day, so I quite had a good training and the effect of alcohol.

Hi,Kumi!
I was not able to sketch with Kumi and was regrettable.
Your watercolours are nice, especially 2nd,3rd and last one.

Kumi-san :D You have some excellent sketches as always. Beer may have helped, but I think mostly your artwork and ability transcends borders. You don't have to be concerned if people see you drawing and painting -- share with them! The sketches of your tablemates, the crowd and the girl on the subway are my favourites. The next time, I want to have a "drink and draw" session with you too :)
