Azmi Murad's Art

Azmi Murad, a local artist, wrote to me sometime back and I was taken busy, hence this late post.
I stumbled upon his booth at a shopping complex in Setiawangsa recently where he was doing sketches with friends (I didn't disturb him). His works are pretty good and I kinda like his watercolour. I always liked plein air paintings.

He also paints in oil as well, of still life, and does portraiture sketches. His site is here.
