Triple Gems

This is my latest work, I am playing with lines and shapes, hues and tonal values. It is very loosely painted with the colours allowed to merge and their their own places on this cotton-based heavyweight paper. I am amazed at the images that emerged.

Concubine Lane, Ipoh

Concubine Lane, 2014, 9x11in, watercolour

I have always wanted to paint the Concubine Lane, Ipoh, ever since I saw it some years back but didn't get to it for one reason or the other. I love the play of structures against each other, as if continuing a conversation from the past. The stretch is undergoing refurbishment - the owners of the buildings here are undertaking renovation because some of the structures are falling apart.
I have painted this lane with lots of light to enhance the quiet mood.

Tanjung Lumpur 1

This is the Tanjung Lumpur Jetty. This fishing town is famous for ikan bakar. Most of the trawlers that go up Kuantan jetty to unload their fish will have to pass by this estuarine town. In this picture is an old boat awaiting repair. This was taken at low tide.
