While the phoenix on my arm is healing, I try to sketch at least for some time. HK of course. Fellow sketchers: how to overcome the love for monochrome and start using all those vermilions, cadmium yellows etc? They are just sit in my watercolour boxes while I keep refilling all shades of grey, black and ochre-umbra spectre? 🤦🏻♂️
I will be hosting a watercolor sketching class 👩🏻🎨 with @thedeskhk and @geneycleegallery this coming Thursday night!!! ❤️ Please sign up if you haven’t: https://www.facebook.com/events/435899880191932/?ti=icl
Sketching of Tsing Yi Bamboo Theatre. It’s a traditional event in Hong Kong for celebrating the birthday of two Chinese gods. There’re Chinese opera performances in the temporarily built theatre surrounded by many local food vendors.
Painted this sketch last night but I was not happy with the result. I think what I struggled with was whether to include the skyscrapers. They did cast dark shadows on the sea and it would be strange not to include them...I am tempted to redraw this scene at a different time of the day and see if there is any difference. #skyscrapercity#sunset#sketchbook#watercolourart#urbansketch#uskhk#usk
I was wondering what would get drawn on the last page of my first square sketchbook today. And I surprised myself to have caught this view of Kwun Tong just before the sun went down. Usually I am on the train going through this station on the way to work with the fire station on my left and the colourful blocks of flats on my right, and this evening I caught them together from the terrace of the restaurant I was dining in. #kwuntong#kwuntongfirestation#sketchbook#sketchbookart#urbansketch#usk#uskhk
