Art in Wetlands

Sharing nature through art

Revisiting old Sungei Buloh sites March 31, 2020

Its more than 3 months since I last visited Sungei Buloh. That was in Nov  when we held a story telling workshop with volunteers and staff, with  Jackie Kerin our  friend from Melbourne. And on Christmas Day  Munn, Janice, Isaiah accompanied me as I conducted a paint along session, during which  Isaiah told the story of the Godwit at the Main Hide.

Many outdoor activities were cancelled due to the Corvid 19 presence. And we are now trying to keep it at bay by various social distancing measures introduced by our Govt to reduce its spread. Staying home as much as possible. Keeping myself busy with painting, reviving many of my old skills. Here is one using water mixable oil paints, applied like water colour artwork.

Miss the outdoors at Buloh, esp painting sessions. This painting done at home, with ref to an old sketch, done  on site when June was with me in Sep 2002, revisiting a scene  from Platform 2, looking towards Johor Bahru.

Hope to be able to visit Buloh as soon as the situation get better.
