Sketching at Lebuh Armenian with the Penang Sketchers (15 January 2012)

In January, I made a trip to Penang (my second time, after that sketching trip there last year), and managed to join the Urban Sketchers Penang group to draw around Armenian Street (Lebuh Armenian) in George Town.

Here's a video I made that day while sketching:


This was filmed in HD quality using an iPhone 4 and edited with its iMovie application. Added some royalty-free music by Jason Shaw.

Hope you'll enjoy it!

And here are my two sketches during this particular session...


On the left is the Penang Islamic Museum (formerly the residence of Syed Mohd Alatas, an Achehnese merchant of Arab descent who led the Acheen Street Mosque community during the Penang riots in 1867), and on the right is the residence of Narelle, the friendly owner of China House and a string of art galleries in Penang.

More photos and videos of this sketching trip to come! :)

Cheers,
Edric
