Sketchcrawl at Diocesan Boys' School


On 1st April 2017, we had an opportunity to sketch in one of the most famous schools in Hong Kong, the Diocesan Boys' School.
Founded in 1869, it is one of the oldest secondary schools in the city. The sky was beautiful and the campus is awesome, and of course the result is super.


Final photo with the boys.

In Memory of Mr Yip (Fat S Yip), One of Our Fellow Sketchers




In Memory of Mr Yip (Fat S Yip)

As one of the earliest members to join Urban Sketchers Hong Kong, Mr Yip had always been a very active member and had contributed many wonderful sketches of Hong Kong and abroad to our group. Mr Yip’s sketches are lively, cheerful and full of passion. Some of his sketches were explorations of Chinese ink painting in urban sketches, a rare and bold approach. His works indeed gave our fellow sketchers a lot of inspirations. We are very sad to learn about Mr Yip’s passing on the 5th February 2017 and we will surely miss him. He was 72.  

With deepest condolences,
Urban Sketchers Hong Kong
