Sketching Rooftops in Sham Shui Po 北河街畫天台

Sketching Rooftops in Sham Shui Po 北河街畫天台


Under the very hot weather warning, I went up to the air-conditioned top floor of the Pei Ho Street Municipal Services Building in Sham Shui Po to sketch.  The municipal services building is surrounded by old tenement buildings on all sides.  Their rooftops form a strange world which is totally different from the buzzing life on the street level.  Under the scorching sun, the old rooftops are all quiet and yet captivating in their own special way.

酷熱天氣警告下,我同畫友登上冷氣十足的北河街街市市政大廈頂樓寫生。市政大廈四面皆唐樓。酷熱天氣下,高低起伏的唐樓屋頂異常寧靜,構成一個奇異的城市空間。
