Kranji Marshes and Moorhens April 8, 2016

There is  always a first time for everything.

This morning I visited this marshland to explore outdoor painting  possibilities for my  outdoor art sessions as a volunteer artist for Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.

This water colour painting is my first ever  painting done at Kranji Marshes, and for the first time too was my fortuitous sighting of  a pair of Moorhens right before my eyes at the Moorhen Blind when I was half way through my watercolour painting!!.What a memorable experience.

Nature has its ways of rewarding  my visits with such wonderful coincidence.

 

 

 

14th Anniversary as a Volunteer in our wetlands February 23, 2016

Today I celebrate my 14 years  as a volunteer at our Sungei Buloh Wetlands.

There is something special about this reserve that kept me interested and to continue to express what I feel should be recorded and shared. The fauna (birds in particular) and the mudflat creatures are my favourites. The changes in the flora environment  captures my attention too.

Here is my painting I did this morning at the Main Hide,  and enjoying yet another beautiful start to my 15th year of volunteering   with the sight and sound of migratory birds flying past me now and then.

Expressing wetlands with other mediums February 4, 2016

Filed under: Daily Inspiration,Landscapes images,Uncategorized,Works of Wetland Art — artinwetlands @ 1:30 am

After many years of appreciating this Wetlands in my usual watercolours, pencils, oil and charcoal, an exploration with chinese ink and brush may open up new  ways of capturing this gem of a wetlands in Singapore.

Here is my first, using low cost chinese brushes to do just that. Promising possibilities and certainly a new perspective for my wetlands landscape painting.
