Sitting in front of this Tin Hau Temple (temple of the goddess of the sea), I sketched a friend standing in front of a joss stick tripod. Behind her was the Saam Ka Village, a village built along the shoreline at the entrance to Victoria Harbour. On the right was a rocky cliff adorned with two rusty ancient cannons facing the sea.

The temple was built in 1960 and because the site is next to a stream, the temple was designed to look like a ship. The temple is a Buddhist temple and it is dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, however, most locals just call it the "ship temple".

The painting is based on an old Hong Kong photo which depicts the old harbor of Aberdeen. Watercolor was applied first using wet on wet method. Boats were drawn when the watercolor was dry.

KUC Space is a very cozy cafe housed in a historic building now currently owned by the Kowloon Union Church in the Jordan District, Hong Kong. It's a great place for drinks, organic dishes, or just chilling out! It's an urban sanctuary in the heart of the city!
今天下午到KUC Space會老朋友、嘆 mocha、畫畫同睇書。座落九龍心藏，英式歷史建築內，KUC Space 就好像鬧市中的綠洲！

Wong Tai Sin Temple is a major Taoism Temple in Hong Kong, located in the district which also named after the god, Wong Tai Sin. It was a fine warm day today. The temple was full of pilgrims, holding joss sticks, kneeling in front of the altar, praying to the mighty god of Wong Tai Sin.
After sketching for an afternoon, we shared our sketches together. Great results!

Finally finished! A painting based on a very old Hong Kong postcard depicting a street hairdresser taking care of a baby's hair. During the process, I used my iPhone recording the different stages of the painting. First, the blocking, then basic lights and shadows, details, and finally, deepening the darks and lights.
