Enthusiastic sketchers have enjoyed this glorious sunny summer day with popular Sketching Saturday on 21 August 2021. Led by Hong Kong water colour artist and architect Jimmy Luk, we all gained new techniques and knowledge of watercolour painting. We experienced the joy of using high quality watercolour paint from Winsor & Newton and double-300gsm watercolour papers from L'oeil Art included in the watercolour gift set. A watercolour brush and a couple of pencils are also included along with a clipboard. Just a perfect setting for a wonderful plein air painting session!
Grew up in Hong Kong and studied architecture at the University of California at Berkeley, Jimmy is a watercolour artist and an architect currently working in Hong Kong. When he was young, he fell for western painting and did a lot of charcoal and acrylic paintings. Till five years ago, he started watercolour and found watercolor set surprisingly portable, extremely easy to maintain, and perfect for urban and travel painting. With a strong architectural background, he developed a painting style that skillfully combines the artistic and technical side with a focus on urban architecture and landscape plein-air painting. His paintings often show rich composition with layering, detailing, accurate perspective and an emphasis on light and shadow with a touch of classical painting style.
