Long before urban and technological development, people relied heavily on natural resources to make a living. By conforming various types of natural environments, different habits and cultures were established. Looking back into anthropological history and rethinking the behaviour of manipulating nature today, human remains insignificant in front of the vast and powerful nature.

The medium of pastel provides a rich selection of colours. It creates unique effects which give a harmonious feeling, and it is easy to carry, making it particularly suitable for outdoor sketching. In the videos, the artist, David Chui, makes use of the natural scenery of KFBG, to introduce the basic skills of pastel sketching, and to guide you to enjoy nature sketching.
