Clive St (14 Mar 2014) by parka
Clive St (14 Mar 2014)
A sketch at Clive Street and Hastings Road's intersection. I basically lucked out. Managed to sit beside the road and finished the drawing before a huge Coca Cola truck parked in front of me. By then, I had finished the line work and was only left with the colouring, which I coloured a few steps away from the truck.
Overlooking Little India, Singapore (11 Mar 2014) by parka
Overlooking Little India, Singapore (11 Mar 2014)

WN watercolours, Uniball Jetstream, on Fabriano 12.5 by 9.5 inch 200GSM watercolour paper

For this sketch, I tried to use as few colours as possible for mixing. So I used

  • Yellow Ochre
  • Perm Alizarin Crimson
  • French Ultramarine
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Viridian

Mixing green with French Ultramarine and Yellow Ochre results in a very dull green that's almost usable. Having Viridian is quite convenient. I also used Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Red for the metal of the lifting crane.

I've a comment on Facebook asking my approach to this scene. With any complicated scene, patience is the key. The slower you draw, the more accurate your drawing will be. Of course, it will have to depend on the amount of time you have. As you can see from my lines, I was rushing quite a bit to finish this within 2 hours.

Cheng Yan Place, 27 Feb 2014

This is Cheng Yan Place in Bugis area of Singapore.

Singapore is still having very windy days and it's quite challenging to draw with the paper flapping around. I only had one clip.

It's a watercolour and ink sketch using WN watercolours. 9 by 12 inch.

Here's my coverage for the Singapore Toys, Games and Comics Convention 2010. The focus is on Artist Alley.…

Hi Parka - I would like to use the Jewel of muscat pic for an educational calendar (not the cutaway pic, the one with the black background) have you got it against a white background?
Would you be willing to for us to use this? Do you want a credit line. If so what?

Sorry, the Muscat graphic was for commercial use so can't be used for other purposes.
