Tai Po market
AUGUST 6, 2012
Tai Po market has become the place here in Hong Kong where we like to shop. It's a bustling neighborhood with pedestrian streets of outdoor markets that sell everything. The main streets are very hot and crowded with stalls and shoppers shuffling slowly in a herd with their purchases in tow. I like to walk down the side alleys which are quieter, shady, and often reveal great things to sketch:
The watch repair man.
Women playing cards in an alley.
Restaurant customers watching the Olympics on tv.
I did this sketch outside of Times Square in Hong Kong, a big complex of indoor malls.
