new and old skyline from Tiong Bahru


Paul, Don, Miel and yours truly are planning for a joint exhibition on Tiong Bahru, one of the oldest estates in Singapore. So, we have been combing the neighbourhood for the past weeks and met many interesting people and discovered the cultural and historical aspects of the place. The view of this watercolour piece was taken from Kelvin Ang's house on the second storey. I love how the new and the old skyline come together harmoniously in this view and I try to capture it by manipulating the light and shadow in the midground and background.
