Last sketch for 2015 at Sungei Buloh December 26, 2015

For the places I love, a little something special about it makes it more alluring. It could be the weather, the morning shine of the clouds reflected in the water, or simply the birds that came to rest. But i just want to capture that special appeal which will mark my last sketching effort for the year in this wetlands.
Will be there at Eagle Point tomorrow morning to savour it once more.1-2015-12-027

A New Look for Sungei Buloh Wetlands Eerie December 12, 2015

I made a long overdue visit to my favourite reserve last week and was pleasantly surprised at the new clean  look of the bund thats leads to the Observation Tower and the freshly trimmed undergrowth. Sighted 10 storks and  hundreds of whimbrels lining the curved bund enjoying the bright sunny morning. Painted this new look for the records.

When I know my subjects well, executing a painting to fit the occasion is not difficult. We have wonderful parks and nature areas in our City in a Garden but some gem-like scenes take some effort to locate. My sunset scene of a coastal Sungei Buloh scene may fit nicely to my idea of a nice and peaceful aspect of Singapore that some may not have the chance to enjoy. Here is my take in a water colour painting. Happy birthday Singapore.
