茶果嶺



茶果嶺是香港的舊區,我們在藍田港鐵站步行至茶果嶺村大概要15分鐘。


我們在附近走了一圈取景,天氣時晴時陰,村內到處是窄巷太近的,對我們來說很困難,因為透視會較誇張。整條村的屋以鐵皮屋為主,很有特式,有些是磚屋,相信是原有的建築,由於鐵皮不善隔音,左鄰右里基本上是沒有秘密的。

我和朋友決定在有篷的地方坐下取景寫生。我選了一條通向馬路的巷景,兩旁有屋,沒有太豐富的色彩,但構圖頗佳。天陰晴不定,時有驟雨,但總算完成。畫的時候,心也在想,這些屋雖有冷氣,但外牆物料曅竟是鐵皮所造,尤其是下雨,一定很吵耳,可能還會漏水呢!


Cha Kwo Ling is one of the old districts in Hong Kong. We walked from Nam Tin MTR Station for about 15 mins to there.


We took a walk around the village, the weather was not fine, there was a hard shower. Lots of alleys in the village.  It is hard for us to sketch the scene where is too close to us because the perpective is hard to catch precisely. The houses in the village are mainly made of iron plates, very unique as a whole. Fews are made of bricks that could be the orginal houses built years ago. As the iron plate is not a good material for noise isolation, there is no secret between families.


We find a place with the canopy and sit down for the sketching. The scene I picked is an alley to the road, there are houses in both sides, not very colourful. However, I like the composition. There were sunshines and showers. During sketching, I was thinking even there is air condition in the house, but the material built is iron plate, it must be very noisy in raining days. Perhaps it leaks too.
