First Sketch of my Singapore Trip: Sketching and Eating at the Telok Ayer Market (Lau Pa Sat) 抵步星架坡第一張速寫 Telok Ayer Market (Lau Pa Sat)

After settling in a nearby hostel, we went out to this historic market and had our first meal in Singapore.  We couldn't resist to sketch the vibrant scene and the very iconic metal structure of the building.

抵步星架坡,放下行理,天已黑,係時候出外醫肚。 得知Telok Ayer Market (Lau Pa Sat) 就係附近,我地就走去食晚飯,飯後大家當然要幫Telok Ayer Market畫番張速寫啦。

6th International Urban Sketchers Day 3: Norris Street, Little India 星架坡小印度一角

6th International Urban Sketchers Symposium Day 2: Sketchwalk at Waterloo Street 第二日Waterloo Street 速寫印度廟

On the third day of the symposium, we went to a sketchwalk at Waterloo Street.  I really liked the delicate patterns and sculptures of this Hindu temple.  I decided not to use colour so that I could focus on the  patterns using line work only.

Waterloo Street 此處有一印度廟,印度廟四處都有精緻圖案同神像雕刻,畫時只用線條不用色,目的係要突出其精緻圖案。

6th International Urban Sketchers Symposium Day 3: Sketching at Long Bar, Raffles Hotel 新加坡萊佛士酒店

Nice atmosphere, nice drinks and peanut shells littered everywhere on the floor.  I was told that it was the only place that people were allowed to litter the floor (with peanut shells only I guess).

新加坡萊佛士酒店 Long Bar 充滿英式殖民地氣氛,高樓底,回旋木梯,典雅木櫃再加上籐椅,係作畫嘅好地方。

Sai Kung Tin Man 西貢鐵匠

Sai Kung Tin Man

It's sad to know that Mr Mak (Sai Kung Tin Man) has passed away. I really admired him for his dedication to his craft.

It's a studio painting which I did 7 years ago of him.
