A Hongkongese in Taipei : Sketching Beitou 港人畫台北 : 速寫北投

Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei, Taiwan

Thanks to Carton and friends from Urban Sketchers Taipei,  I had a very happy sketch day in Beitou and visited a few interesting spots in the area.  The first place we sketched was the Beitou Public Library, a wooden structure that stands next to the hot spring river.  I was really drawn to the interior of the library so I decided to stay inside and made a sketch out of it.  During lunch, we shared our sketches and talked about different techniques and styles.  Carton, the leader of the Taipei sketch group, even demonstrated to us his quick sketch method.  After lunch, we visited the Beitou Hot Spring Museum, formerly a Japanese bathhouse and I chose to sketch in the balcony of the museum afterwards.
