Hot. Very hot. Got so hot that when the breeze blew by I got chills. From now on all work needs to be done indoors or before lunch. Ok.
This painting is of the fruit and meat market on Chun Yeung Street. I actually drew the spot I sat last time I was here drawing the tram. But last time was more pleasant and not so damn hot (that’s 4 times I mentioned hot for those of you counting) I used watercolors for a general color wash and then drew over that with water soluble pencil. But between the heat and humidity, I smeared the pencil everywhere and smudged a lot of the painting. I drank about 1 liter of water per hour as well as juice and soy milk. Now I’m going home to swim at the beach if there is anything left of me.
