Self Portrait

My first watercolor self-portrait.

這是第一張水彩自畫像,油畫的畫過,素描很多次了,水彩是第一次。畫得不像,但也不去修修改改了,保留水感,畫得像的留給下次。

Three of them – 牠們仨

The scenery in front of my friend’s house in Mui Wo.

每年都會去梅窩寫生,主要是畫牛,因為武漢肺炎疫情一再蔓延,現在哪裏都不想去,大家都待在家裡減少感染的機會。今天畫了梅窩朋友的照片,她家門前的風景,家門前有這樣的風景,生活能過的不恰意嗎! 畫得抽象一點,把形狀找出來,把三隻水牛找出來。

Plein-air again!

Finally, pleinair again. Same sun, same place & i still feel the excitement. 

經過了一段長時間後,跟Lisa再次外出寫生,在我們最熟悉的馬灣涌小海灣。雖然天氣非常炎熱,但感覺還是非常恰意,是最美好的時光。

Ian My Boy

孩子兩個月大了,夫妻倆一直都在為照顧他而忙碌,作畫的時間是沒有,但偶爾還是可以拿個本子來速寫一下,對象就是小人兒,感覺他一天一個樣,還很難做正式一點的肖像。不談像不像,也算是我們的愉悅時光。

Group Exhibitions with HKARTS

Recording Year 2019’s two exhibitions with HKARTS, one at The NATE and the other at 41 Water Street. From scrubbing the bare walls to constructing the display walls, to installing air-conditioning, to publicising, to gaining sponsorship; HKARTS’ founders were completely hands-on (& feet-down!). I am humbled and honoured to partner them. May we strive in this current adversity of uncertainty!

紀錄2019年參與The Hong Kong Arts Collective (HKARTS) 的兩次聯展,分別是7月在尖沙嘴的The NATE和12月份在水街41號地舖的HKARTS固定展廳。HKARTS是很有心的畫廊組織,創辦人有理想,但從他們開始運營就遇上了香港反送中運動,其後是武漢肺炎,導致很難營造氣氛,參觀人數有所限制。面對種種困難他們堅持把展覽辦好,也嘗試開拓各種網路展出及銷售機會,當疫情結束,我相信他們能辦出更精彩的展覽!

vifArt Sketchbook

Extracts from my vifArt sketchbook.
I base on the nature of a sketchbook (if the paper is smooth, rough, grainy, plain etc) to paint, to create what I think is best with it within the shortest time.

這一本是日本製的叫vifArt, 木漿紙沒有棉紙的吸水能力,容易留下個性水跡,但重疊能力差,適合用來畫速寫,挑選幾張來分享。

Book: 101 Sketching Tips

Thank you Stephanie Bower for including me to this wonderful book!

我有一張鉛筆小頭像收錄在美國速寫名家/作家 Stephanie Bower的新書裡,這是一本非常好的工具書,可說是集百家之大成,特別有利於速寫。
