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.

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.

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.

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.

The temple was built more than 200 years ago. It was thought that the temple was dedicated to a war general named Yeung Leung Jit but no one is sure nowadays. There are a lot of historic relics inside the temple. After sketching the entrance corridor, I included the spearheads of eight of the sixteen beautifully-crafted spears placed on both sides of the temple corridor. They might be symbols depicting the Eight Immortals often times depicted in Classical Chinese literature but I'm not completely sure.

A fun sketch session with a group of happy urban sketchers inside the cozy Eslite Spectrum Tsim Sha Tsui Store. I chose this particular spot where I could sketch the rows of bookshelves on the left , the people reading right in front of me and the Victoria Harbour outside the window.
