今天上午約十一點左右在大伯公街寫生,天氣現當炎熱。所畫的重點建築是陳氏宗祠及其附近的印度雜貨攤。陳氏宗祠高大的山牆讓你容易區分他與鄰近的建築,不過我反而較為熟悉那山牆的背影,原因是在清荷人文空間(現亞化畫廊)的後面天台就可看到。清荷人文空間於我有太多太多美麗的回憶!

我做畫的地點是在大馬彩投注站旁的馬路邊,旁邊有個露天讓人求神問事和算命的檔口。算命師是位華人阿姨不過今天的求問者則是印度人,真是Satu Malaysia。畫到將近快完成時有位伯伯在後看了蠻久,他說「我看你一定是練了很久,下筆很準,如果到旁邊投注站買3D也這樣準就好了!」我聽了哈哈大笑。其實不是我所畫的每一條線都準確無誤,失誤的線條只有我自己知道,我是不會告訴你的!

I done this sketch at a street corner next to a Da Ma Cai lottery betting station. Next to me was a Chinese lady fortune teller but most of her customers were Indian. A old man look at me drawing for quite a while, when i was about to finish my sketch, he told me that my lines and strokes were very accurate if his betting game was accurate as my stroke then he will be rich. Its a real funny comments.
