Wun Yiu Village | 大埔碗窰村

Nice weather again. About 15 minutes walk from Tai Po Market MTR station, we reached this village.

This is a little temple for the porcelain masters.

Thanks to Mr. YK Chan's advice. He put the shadow and showed me how to draw the trees. It enhanced the drawing a lot.

Loving Sha Tin

I went to cycling with a friend. The weather is bad these days, either too hot or rains hard. Last night, it was just perfect. From Regal Riverside to Science Park, we stood near the coast, watched the sky and the sea. We saw the stars on the sky. My friend was complaining that they could not see any sky on the event days of turning off the light near the harbour side. Yes, too much electricity in Hong Kong. We were enjoying the darkness and the quiet of the night. The opposite side is Tai Po. We saw some lights from the highways and buildings. We saw the reflection from the sea surface. We counted the stars over the star. I felt so treasure under the nature. I was so wonder that I never thought about cycling at night in Science Park where I was still living in Tsuen Wan.

Thanks the nature, heal our hearts!

Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery 萬佛寺

This morning, we went to Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery for sketching. We climbed up the stairs. There are two ways to get there. One is about 400 stairs, another is about 500 stairs. It is a really good exercise. When I was in front of the temple, I felt I cannot speak and my heart rate was so high. The scene is nice and there is a Kwun Yin status with pearl white colour in front of a small waterfall. It is so pretty. I drew a hill side with some golden status.

This is very nice video for learning watercolour in figure painting. The course design is clear and fit to different levels of learners.
