My Hong Kong Brolly - Blue

COLOUR HONG KONG!
Lorette E. Roberts (A4 Landscape with high quality paper). The spiral binding allows it to lie flat.
Lorette invites us to use the book as a sketchbook, scrapbook or travelogue and provides - alongside her own images - guidelines/tips on sketching.
The book is divided into sections, indicated by coloured strips on the edge of each right hand page. These sections include: Chinese New Year, Celebrations, Traditional Hong Kong, Nature (of course!) and ships.
Not just another book about Hong Kong- with its delightful and colourful sketches and paintings, it aids and abets the current craze to “colour something in”!
FLOWERS and PLANTS of Southeast Asia - Sketches and Paintings
This new book by Artist and Illustrator Lorette. E Roberts is a pictorial travelogue of her sketches, comments and paintings of the Flowers and Plants of Southeast Asia. The result is a beautiful and colourful rendition of mostly tropical species together with personal and recorded anecdotes of her discoveries. Whilst this book lays no claim to be a reference tome for tropical or any other plants, it is a faithful record of Loretteʼs observations of nature during her many travels in Southeast Asia. Her instantly recognisable style engages the reader and viewer throughout.

2018 HONG KONG WORKSHOPS AND SKETCHING GROUPS
Sketches just capture the moment but make a memory - lasting a lifetime!
…That you should leave the Workshop with the confidence to start painting on your own OR any existing painting problems have been resolved!
Lorette always acts as a facilitator during all workshops rather than dictating what must be done. Thus, participants work as they wish but receive encouragement and advice from Lorette on techniques, materials, composition and problems. In this way, everyone improves on their own abilities and can work at their own pace. All workshops are therefore bespoke – tailored especially to individual needs. Hence, the maximum of 6 in a workshop.
English is spoken at all Workshops.
Typical subjects covered would be: Flowers, foliage, trees, skies, water, buildings, shadows, people, composition, perspective and colour mixing.
