Drawing Reclamation Street 畫新填地街

This was the first time I set up a camera and captured my drawing progress.  Hope you like it!

Street Market at Reclamtion Street  新填地街經典排檔

The street market at Reclamation Street is a fascinating place! The stalls, which mainly feature fresh fruit and herbal medicine, are framed by old tenement buildings on both sides of the street. This drawing is based on a series of photos I took there a few weeks ago.

Such charming street markets and their street cultures are under threat now as large developers are pulling down these old buildings in every old district at an alarming speed.
