I spent a good part of the day out running around to the library and shopping, but still made time to do 3 drawings. The first drawing is from the Hong Kong Yacht Club. I haven’t been there in a long time. And if I wasn’t in a hurry I would have stayed to watch the noon canon fire off. Maybe next time I’ll bring the kids to see it as well.
From there I went to North Point via the tram. I stayed a little over 2 hours and drew these pictures at Marble Road, a famous street market known for cheap clothes. This part of town has a lot of immigrants from Fugian Provence, China. They are well known for their meatballs stuffed with whole garlic cloves. Very tasty food along this street. And while the shop keepers in Causeway Bay treat you like a brainless tourist, in North Point they were very friendly and interested in talking to me about drawing. With this in mind, I plan on staying away from tourist areas. I don’t need to have to watch my back to make sure I’m getting the proper change from greedy shop keepers.
