a drawing field trip


On a hot thursday at 12.45pm, I brought a group of 26 design students to Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle for a drawing trip. The students enjoyed the place and to many of them, it was their first visit to a dragon kiln. I saw many impressive little sketches on their A4 size sketchbook. They would need to do another A3 size drawing of the place but it started pouring at 4pm so we had to leave. The coach was there waiting for the students to bring them back to the campus. Apart from the mosquito attack, it was quite a smooth and successful field trip.

I started this piece as a quick demo piece to a small group of students when most of them already started drawing and settled down quite well. I added the colours for the trees on the spot but completed the colouring and added more textures later at home.
