Congratulation on your new blog. I am a fan! Please keep posting :)
Ola! Lovely drawing! For one, my best artistic endeavour has to be stick figures so I admire anyone who can draw well. I've moved to blogspot since it's more customizable. If you don't mind a whole lot of girly fashion posts and an occasional musing, come visit me :)So back to the singlehood subject, does the father subject you to blind dates and push you into the neighbour's daughter's way? Haha
Thanks. Hahaha. No, no blind dates Merry Traveller. What about you?Blogspot seems to have improved quite a bit in recent years. Your new blogs are rather barren for now? No?
Thanks Wilfrid, I want there to be a focus for this blog.
The other is about everything, a rambling place of everything. This is for drawings and a bit of commentary on drawings and techniques.
This is wonderful! I like that you've kept the grey tones and added the pigment. It has such a great effect.
Thank you Carla. The building had a warm grey cast to it in the evening light that night. The orange glows of the lights did assist in achieving that effect. The drawing is actually representational rather than accurate.
Aha! The Archipelago and OCBC at the far. It's quite unique the structure of the actual building, it's exactly the way it is in the illustration, a pointed sharp corner. Not a 90 degree corner, more like 45 maybe.
Ahh.. You taught me something. It is the name of the building.
I have an idea now of a more exaggerated form. However, I would sketch that of a church in Little India.
Thanks. I decided to go for a more illustrative means. I have lost sight of things, like AG said, obsessive, when it came to realism and rendering things. After seeing your work and you telling me that I have all the fundamentals, I realise that doing these stylised, Victorian era etchings can only serve me so far. I have only ever drawn with feeling and not with mind. Now, a balance of both serves me and I think it will lead to freer and more expressive works. A loosening of my obsessive methods. Sure, it is a distinctive style but it does not permit me many directions due to a variety of reasons.
Oh no no, the building is not Archipelago. It's the bar "Archipelago" there at the building.
Got it. Thanks. There was the wording that was below the windows which I didn't draw in. I should have.
Wonderful piece! I like how you brought up the colors in the windows and trees, they really make the image pop.
