i was asked to do a custom drawing of a house in south lantau. happily i accepted since i haven't done this since my studies in italy. the house is situated in tai long wan, a quiet village full of lychee trees, barking dogs and old people sitting on benches. while their house is the usual 700square foot/ three storey building, their garden is truly beautiful. it runs over two terraces with a well maintained lawn and trees full of lemons and mangos (in summer that is) as well as vegetable beds. i was so lucky to catch the bauhinia tree in full bloom:)
for two afternoons i was sitting in this lush garden, with the sketch book on my lap, the sound of the waves in the background, sipping tea (or pink water accidentally) and drawing away. heaven!
here is the finished drawing:
