Result of January Sketchwalk at Chinatown

Chinatown is buzzing this morning as Chinese New Year is another two weeks away. Last year this time before Covid-19 lock down, it was really crowded with tourists and local shoppers. Now, I only saw one group of German tourists among the local crowd in the morning. The first storey used to be a souvenior shop with all the display stands outside the shop and now a restaurant is occupaying that space with tables and chairs placed along the corridor of the shophouse.

Today, I tried a different approach by adding watercolour washes first before pen work on loose Saunders Waterford watercolour paper, adding colours and continue with pen work again. I added more human figures at home to bring out the festive mood and instill positivity during this trying time of Covid-19 pandemic.
