A delayed post of a sketch from last week.
Watch and clock shops is an inconspicuous sunset industry on my bucket list.
This watch shop sits on the ground floor by the stairway of an old building. The kind of shops is called “understairs shops”, which is slowly disappearing following the demolishes of old buildings.
Yea, I have been quiet for some time and I didn’t really sketch...and once after a long time, sketching on the street refreshes me a bit (I almost thought I had forgotten how to sketch)
It’s a sketch of a small, old candy shop on Cheung Chau from #uskhk sketchcrawl. I kind of miss it especially to this kind of special spot. The Bun Carnival is on the next week despite I didn’t sketch anything really related.
The owner of the shop is an interesting 70-ish woman that I could already have an idea about her family after 2 hours sketching there. She even gave me some snacks afterwards, but the candy in the picture was actually bought from her shop. .
The day was rainy but I was reminded of my old passion in sketching and maybe I should find time to light it up again.
