A view from the balcony of my friend's flat – it was quite lovely just sitting there in a huge hammock and drawing (but then – can anything be not lovely when viewed from a hammock?)

A few drawings done in Xiamen in the south of China. Definitely one of the best cities I visited there. Above is the view from my friend’s balcony. It was lovely just sitting there in a hammock and sketching away – but then, can anything be not lovely in a hammock?


Above and below: view from the promenade. The picture on top is of the Gulang Yu – the Island of Thundering Waves. A beautiful and quirky, if slightly overcrowded place. It’s full of old Portuguese architecture and strange corners and alleys (Xiamen used to be a Portuguese protectorate, which gives it an aura of and old European city).
