This is my little advertisement for Waikiki! Watercolor and oil pen
latest updates: Honolulu
It’s papaya time again in Honolulu! This is the Wednesday morning market in Kapiolani Park, which I stumbled upon while taking my walk around the park for exercise.

This is a Chinese Christian Church on King Street in Honolulu. I am always charmed by the architecture and the colorful tiles attached to this place. One day I finally parked illegally on this busy street and whipped out this quick sketch of it.

This is the view from my lanai that I sketched because it was the day of SketchCrawl and also to try and distract myself just a little bit from worrying about the big wave rolling in. Every sailboat on the island seemed to be out at sea and our beaches were deserted. All I saw was a tidal surge every 10 minutes or so with our reefs being exposed, then covered, and then exposed again. Am so happy we survived this one and I can relax and focus again.
A small part of an architecturally detailed famous old building still standing in Honolulu’s Chinatown. I did have a lunch here 20 years ago, but am not sure it is still a restaurant, especially in this economy. Saturdays in Chinatown are just bustling with people doing their food shopping for the week and it was very difficult to find a place out of the way and with some kind of interesting view to sketch.
Kings Village is a small British-inspired multi-level shopping center in Waikiki. It is painted in red, white and blue with lots of flowering plants and charming architecture. I have not been here in a while, so I found a bench in the shade and drew what I could see from there.

This is a sort of collage of the little details that caught my eye in Chinatown. I tried very hard to not add too much color to the page this time!
