Little bits and pieces of my trip to Singapore that I haven’t posted yet…
A page of quick figure sketches on a layover at Narita Airport, on my way to Singapore. Sailor Bent Nib Pen, and something I’ve been playing around with a little: a waterbrush preloaded with diluted ink.
You can see I tried that again here on toned paper at the very last sketchcrawl at the Urban Sketchers Symposium. Quick little figures, this time with brushpen, a diluted grey in a waterbrush, ( a mix of blue and brown inks) and a white gelpen.
More shophouses, this time on Purvis Street, at the opening sketchcrawl for the symposium where I sat between two amazing sketchers: How’s that for inspiration? Ch’ng Kiah Kiean aka KK on the left, Jim Richards on the right.
I really came to like the Supertrees, though. Their ever changing appearance over the course of the day is lovely. Sketched in the fast-fading light with one of my favorite sketchers, Marina Grechanik. But we didn’t take a photo, Marina!A view of the National Design Center and the city beyond from the National Library.
The Raffles Hotel, home of the Singapore Sling.
Look what Stephanie Bower, was doing while I did this!
I can’t say enough about how fantastic it is to get to sketch with so many sketchers, to exchange ideas, and to be inspired by their work. I’m always sad when I leave because there just isn’t enough time to spend with my growing bunch of Usk friends! But there is always a next time…
A big, big thank you to the organizers for another fantastic Symposium and for so many wonderful memories from Singapore.
