I managed to paint quite a bit over there.
But after coming back to Singapore, that fire in me suddenly turned to water with a bad touch of alchemy and vaporized into steam. Do not ask me how that happened... (Come to think about it, I guess I was very busy having business meetings with Ailyn from Tat'sWorthy@Such for our collab workshop!)
Then 2015 arrived, and on the very spanking new day, while strolling at a nearby park, I decided to dish out my 95% untouched mini sketchpad and started sketching things that I was seeing around me. A little painting wouldn't hurt too.
Random wilted leaves, pods and flowers on the pathway
Tree stump with a bush of weird tendrils
Tree with bunches of yellow flower..
I think I was on a roll! A few days later, I busted out my ink pen and the Japanese watercolor set that I got from Tokyo. This time, I challenged myself to a less-than-30-minute doodle and paint. I ended up walking around my studio and doodled random art supplies.
And then the painting and drawing bug took over my life, kinda. I chanced upon this large pinkish cloud in the sky one evening..
Evening Sky - Ink, Watercolor and Gouache on 5" x 7" watercolor paper
Getting a little bored of see-draw-paint, I decided to play around with illustration and a different kind of style.
The Chirpy Gentleman - Ink illustration on watercolored background (5" x 7" watercolor paper)
I also toyed around with abstract watercolor painting!
Jellyfish Universe - Watercolor and Gouache on 5" x 7" watercolor paper
Did another illustration on watercolored background for the most recent work..

More illustrations! More paintings! Here I come!
