Stilt Houses in Tai O, Hong Kong 大澳棚屋

Stilt Houses in Tai O, Hong Kong

27.5 cm x 75 cm
Mixed Media: watercolour,  drawing pens, various markers and acrylic.

There used to be a lot more stilt houses around Hong Kong but as Hong Kong's urban areas kept on expanding, many were lost through reclamation and property development. The stilt houses in Tai O have been well preserved thanks to its remote location, which is in the south-western tip of Lantau Island. Today it has become a tourist destination visited by many during holidays.

Sketching at a Wetland in Yuen Long 南生圍寫生

Sketching at a Wetland

We went out to sketch today at a wetland area in Yuen Long, Hong Kong.  The weather was humid and rainy.  Thanks to the covered wooden dock built on the water, we could safely sketch the surrounding without getting all wet.

今日一班畫友相約到南生圍寫生。天氣悶熱,時晴時雨。好彩濕地上築有一間木造小亭 ,可供避雨兼寫生。

Sketching at a Noodles Shop

After having fish balls noodles, I took out my sketchbook and quickly sketched the scene while waiting for the rain outside to subside.
