Sketchwalk at Potong Pasir / Chinatown (March)

Here's my sketch from Last week's sketchwalk at Potong Pasir! Potong Pasir's known for their houses with slant roofs as you can from the picture on the right. I almost wanted to draw this iconic Potong Pasir building but I couldn't find a suitable spot without obstruction and the view was too wide. 

So I walked further in and managed to find a bench to sit down and sketch this view of slant roofed HDBs. A fellow sketcher commented that I shouldn't draw a triangle because there's nothing I'm directing my viewers on the far right yet my triangle ended there. It'd help if it were to be a V shape. My initial thought was to congregate most elements on the left and keep the right spaced. I guess my composition could be better if there's some elements countering that sharp triangular angle and give it some more layers.
