Ximending 西門町

I did two loose watercolour pieces at Ximending and this is what you see when I put two of them side by side.

What a gathering at Ximending. The name of Ximending came from the period of Japanese colonization. At that time most local residents live within Taipei City. Ximending is the center for recreation. In 1896, the first theater "Tokyo Stand" was set up. In 1922, the place was officially called Ximending. Ximending is really a happening place. So glad to meet all the sketchers. Even Kwin from Bangkok joined us in the afternoon. Asian sketchers united!
