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.
