Black Sugar Coffee, Peace Avenue 勝利道黑糖咖啡

Sketching at Black Sugar Coffee. Instead of sketching the inside, I sat outside of the cafe and sketched the reflection of the street including myself, a bit of the interior of the cafe through the entrance and the bended streetscape where the cafe is located.

Ap Lei Chau Hung Shing Temple 鴨脷洲洪聖古廟

After sketching the Aberdeen harbour, I went with a few sketch friends to the Ap Lei Chau Hung Shing Temple to sketch. Hung Shing is the male sea god of the South Sea. I sketched not just the temple but also the Banyan tree and the very affectionate temple cat.

York in the Evening 約克的黃昏

Ap Lei Chau Waterfront 鴨脷洲海傍

It was my first time sketching at Ap Lei Chau Waterfront. Interesting floating Pier, a lot of Sampans in the Aberdeen harbour and lots of high rises on the other side of the harbour, a truly Hong Kong scene!

All Saints' Church, Pavement, York 英格蘭約克一古老教堂

Finally I started to scan the sketches I did in England and Wales. It was a fine day with occasional sunshine. When the sun came out, I quickly put down the sunlight and shadows.

Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple 油麻地天后廟

Nam Chung Sea Dragon Kings Temple 南涌海龍王廟

A man offering joss sticks to the five sea dragon kings. They are the king of the west sea, the king of the east sea, the king of the north sea and the king of the south sea. The one which sits higher up in the middle is the chief sea dragon king. In order to include more detail of the sea dragon kings, I decided to sketch only three of them.

Hung Fook Street Tenement Building 鴻福街舊唐樓

Hung Fook Street and its proximity is about to undergo great change as another new MTR train line is being constructed in this area. What will happen to the communities here and what will happen to these old tenement buildings?

Pokfulam Village 薄扶林村

It was a great day out sketching at Pokfulam Village, the last remaining village on Hong Kong Island. In order to better capture the character of this place, I made a collage of three sketches, the view of the village, the entrance and an alley.

Pre-War Tenement Building in Wellington Street 威靈頓街永和號唐樓

This building is one of the very few remaining pre-war tenement buildings in Hong Kong. Built in 1879 after the great fire in Central, the ground floor originally housed a jewellery shop. The shop was replaced by a dried seafood shop in 1930 until the whole building was closed down in 2007.

Mural on Sai Kung Cows 西貢流浪牛牆畫

I spent a few hours working on this simple mural this afternoon in the heart of Sai Kung Town.  I hope this little mural can help the public to pay more attention to the feral cows, our dear neighbours in Sai Kung.

Old Barber Shop in San Po Kong 新蒲崗舊式理髮店

Possibly the oldest shop in San Po Kong. I walked past it every day as a kid when I lived in this area. Now it is the only shop that remains the same in the whole street.

Partial Fisheye Perspective: See Cheung Street, Sai Kung Old Town 局部魚眼透視法:西貢舊墟市場街

A typical Sunday scene in Sai Kung Old Town, relaxing and joyful!  In order to capture more of the street scene and to include more people to the scene, I used partial fisheye perspective to squeeze in a section of the street which would otherwise be outside of the picture frame.  I'll upload a video of the sketch process later to illustrate a bit more.

Sketching Military Vehicles at Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence 香港海防博物館畫軍車

The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence is a place worth sketching again and again!  A former fort used during the Battle of Hong Kong in the Second World War by the British Army against the invading Japanese, it now houses military cars, weapons and original military structures.
