Well here it is... all my sketches from my 2 week trip to Singapore (I filled 2.3 A4 watercolour moleskines...but it is great to put them all together in one book)
As you can see I had a ball in Singapore... warning, don't look at this sketchbook on an empty stomach! I loved the colour and the variety of subjects within a compact area and of course the USK Singapore group is awesome, Tia, Paul, DOn and everyone else. A huge thankyou for making me feel so incredibly welcome and I was truly overwhelmed by your generosity. I can't forget to mention that the food is great!!! (food and eating is a national past time in SG and I can confirm that that is indeed the case!)
I did intend to post highlights here as I was going along with the huge scanning job... but maybe in the coming weeks I might post a few individual sketches with some thoughts about why they are significant to me. I had a real breakthrough during this trip - largely due to Paul sharing some of his tips and techniques with me (thanks!) but the whole USK SG groupwas a total inspiration!
You might be able to see the change as you flick through the pages. I started the trip doing the 'same old thing' and finished it - splashing and scraping paint, using pencil or a hero pen and working a lot wetter with my watercolour. I am really excited to see what comes next.....
As usual ...here is the fortnight of sketching in a single image.
