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!
