Tang Nok Hei has had drawing lessons since she was young. She learnt drawing because her mother told her so, and she was not interested in it at the beginning. Drawing lesson became her habit and it was something she needed to do every week. But after a long time, she started to find interesting things in drawings lessons and became interested in drawing. She began using different material to create paintings. When the colour pigment meets water, the colour appears to be moving. Watercolour looks softer and has a light tone compared to other materials. Although she occasionally uses dark colours in her painting, watercolour is still lighter than other materials because it remians to be transparent. She likes to use watercolour because it creates fantastic gradients naturally. Water control is very important: when there is too much water, water stains appear easily. She thinks this is also an interesting point when using watercolour. Tang also paints traditional Chinese painting, which is very different to watercolour paintings. Using only ink and water, one can create a variety of depth.

In this painting, there are tenement buildings in order to present the old appearances of Hong Kong.
The nature will let people feel free. It seems like the place can let people hide there feelings and do not think anything in that time.
