Back to Tiong Bahru


There will be an ad-hoc sketchwalk this coming Sunday from 9am to 12nn to coincide with the launch of the Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail organised by National Heritage Board. Urban Sketchers Singapore are leading the community to sketch the area and we are also given a booth to display our sketches at Tiong Bahru Community Club. I realise I do not have any loose sketches of Tiong Bahru as all of them were sold during the two exhibitions in the past two years. So I went down after my office hour to sketch again. I did two pieces in the long sketchbook which I bought in Bangkok for only 100Bht or S$4.00. Very cheap and the paper quality is good that no problem for heavy washes.

I like the black and white better. Which one do you like?

Size : 160mm x 300mm
Media : ink and watercolour

I like them both, but that bottom one is pretty dynamic!

Nice drawings with red washes which attract my eyes.

Great drawings with such a subtle amount of colour bringing the sketch to life. Lovely.

Hi - I'm liking the coloured one. I agree with devon - a little colour goes a long way!

Both are beautiful, of course--I especially like the way you've used line to create shadow patterns in the bottom sketch--so much energy in those lines, and the bits of color are just enough!

Excellent, both of them but the bottom one is so lively in the linework and that touch of colour drawing you in!
