Singapore turning 50

2 Aug

Singapore is turning 50 on 9 August 2015! It is going to be a big celebration the coming weekend with lots of fireworks!

Did this sketch with markers of the various iconic structures, landmarks and things in Singapore which I like.

Make a guess what they are! Answers after the picture.

Sketching with Markers SG 50

From left to right.

Orchid flowers – Singapore National Flower is an Orchid. It also reminds me of the Singapore Botanical Gardens which has recently been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Esplanade – A place for the performing arts. Its exterior design looks like the shell of the fruit, durian. And we Singaporeans love durians!

Marina Bay Sands – I am still waiting for an opportunity to visit the Infinity Pool at level 57 of this hotel. The three towers of the Marina Bay Sands are spectacular pieces for the Singapore skyline and they provide free laser light shows!

Changi Control Tower at the Airport – The landmark that welcomes or bids me farewell as I go return or go overseas for a holiday.

Merlion – A mystical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Singapore’s mascot.

Sketching with Markers – Afternoon Tea in the Gardens

23 Jul

Today, I get to attend a free program organised by the Library titled “Sketching with Markers”. It was a fun session and I learned new techniques like using various textures and patterns to create depth and shading. I must say everyone in my session is so talented. Art is stronger in Singapore than I thought!

The theme for today is nature and the session was in the afternoon. So I came up with this sketch of the cheerful sunflower, and the butterfly and little fairy having afternoon tea. I need to practise more but I am happy with my attempt. Thank you Library and the Guest Speakers for making this happen!
