Little India

Little India is one of the liviest places in SG, it is so sketch-able that I keep going back… I sketched these back in May when parents were in town and we took them to shop and sketch around Tekka market, I finally found time to add in the color earlier this month..

HK Trip

Haven’t updated for a while as I went back to HK for a short break. Did not bring the camera this time, just a small sketchbook and a pen. It was great to see family and friends again, but the trip was too short.

We took an early flight to HK.

The first thing we did after settling down is to go for a haircut. I had a very bad haircut a few months ago in SG and I need a fix so badly… felt much happier after the haircut. Then we went back to the hotel and take a short break before going to family dinner.

The next day, we went to Sai Kung. We even took a small boat to one of the off islands. The boat ride was really fun. We had desserts at the famous HoneyMoon dessert place before going home for dinner.

South Bridge Road

Last weekend, I joined Master Chan Chang How and the USKSG group to sketch along South Bridge Road around Chinatown. Master Chan is one of the most excellent watercolor painters in Singapore, and it was a very valuable experience to sketch with him. He is a very warm and generous person, volunteer to organize a sketching session like this to share his knowledge in sketching and painting. It was really helpful to see him demonstrate how our sketches could be improved. A very inspiring session indeed.

Sketching at the Subway sandwiches store at the Verge. The construction site opposite seems to be the location of the new subway station..

While I was sketching the motorbikes, one of the owner came and said he’d buy TOTO, lottery in SG, based on the plate numbers of these bikes..

Telok Ayer Street

After having lunch at the Korean restaurant MANNA on the Telok Ayer Street, I did a quick sketch of its shopfront. I sketched another shop along the street, and the entrance of the mosque inside Nagore Durgha.

Nagore Durgha Shrine is located at the intersection of Telok Ayer Street and Boon Tat Street, and this is the view from Boon Tat Street. The architecture is quite unique. I did a quick sketch first before drawing it again on watercolor paper.

Holland Village

Had dim sum brunch at the Crystal Jade of Holland Village last weekend. We were sitting next to the window on the second floor, and I managed to draw this while having dim sum.
