It’s been a dreary, windy last couple of days. I went to The Wan Chai Convention Center to draw this first picture. A few drops of rain began to fall, so I wrapped things up and went to Southorn Park and sat on the bleachers under the awning. And what do you know? I ran into a college art class out drawing! Never thought I would see the day. We were all caught in the rainy weather drawing from the only shelter for several blocks. It’s the first time I felt self conscious drawing. Go figure. I’m still not feeling quite right about my drawings, and now I’m surrounded by students watching me closely. But thanks to Travis for encouraging me to get out and do it anyway. I’ll never improve if I don’t get off my butt and try.
PS. I had some time left so I cut through Hong Kong Park and visited the aviary. Hong Kong has one of the best aviaries I’ve ever visited. It follows a creek down the side of the mountain. The path starts up at Kennedy Road. And even though it was 30 minutes out of my way I’m glad I made the trip.
Rain is beginning to fall and I’m headed home. Have a good weekend.
