DESCRIPTION (ENG)

The painting is derived from an on-location sketch earlier when the Graham Street Market was going to be torn-down due to a city reconstruction scheme. Hearing the news, Elaine followed sketchers from Hong Kong and made sketches there in the hope to “make the last record” of the Market. Thankfully the Market was successfully conserved after few campaigns and Elaine has a strong passion this time to re-make the sketch into a more finished painting that you can see in front of you now.

這張畫作靈感源於早前的一張街頭寫生,當時Elaine聽到嘉咸街街市即將被拆卸重建的消息,立即隨一眾香港速寫者前往紀錄街市的最後一面。幸好最終街市被成功保育,Elaine籍是次展覽將當年的寫生再畫成水彩作品,分享這份熱情。
