Sketching in the Evening at a Cargo Pier 西環貨運碼頭寫生

Sketching in the Evening at a Cargo Pier

The autumn breeze is all around us at this cargo pier in Sai Wan near Kennedy Town.  The absence of railings make the whole place so inviting and thus, people in the neighbourhood love coming here to jog and chill out.

A 15-Minute Sketch

I was on a field trip yesterday morning and we stopped by at the famous sweet "bean curd" dessert shop in Sai Wan Village.  I quickly pulled out my sketchbook and sketched the scene within fifteen minutes before we moved on again.

A merry group of Hong Kong sketchers assembled at the University of Hong Kong today and sketched for an afternoon.  I chose the oldest building of the university, the main building and settled in the corridor next to one of the courtyards in the building to sketch.

Sketching at Maryknoll Convent School 瑪利諾修院學校寫生

Sketching at Maryknoll Convent School

Today I went to Maryknoll Convent School as the school campus was open to public as a participant of Heritage Fiesta, a programme that aims at celebrating the various historic architecture in Hong Kong as well as educating the public about the importance of preserving them.  It was a hot dry day and fortunately I was able to settle in the shade of a large tree and sketched the entrance to the school.  

今年發展局文物保育專員辦事處邀請了 瑪利諾修院學校 參與「古蹟周遊樂2013」並開放小學部校園給公眾參觀。今天天晴趕燥,好在大門有大樹遮陰,作畫時不至曬到滿頭大汗。

St John's Cathedral

An old sketch done last year.

St John's Cathedral is the first Anglican church built in Hong Kong.  The site of St. John's Cathedral is the only freehold land in Hong Kong which was given to the Anglican church permanently.

Sketching at a Wedding Banquet 婚宴寫生

Sketching the Cityscape on the 16th Floor

I attended a wedding banquet this afternoon on an outdoor terrace located on the 16th floor of a high rise mall, high above the busy street in the city centre.  As the jolly banquet came to an end, I stayed behind and quickly sketched the cityscape behind the glass balustrade.

今日前往 the One 十六樓 Garden Terrace 赴會好友婚宴,婚宴後走到 Garden Terrace 北面玻璃圍欄向下望。景色不錯,便坐下速畫。

Sketching at Hong Kong Cemetery 香港墳場寫生

Hong Kong Cemetery

I spent a quiet afternoon sketching at the Hong Kong Cemetery!  It is a nice solemn place to visit on autumn days and a nice place to look at the history of Hong Kong.

The protestant cemetery is one of the earliest cemetery in Hong Kong which was founded in 1845, almost as old as Hong Kong.
