Result of Dempsey Hill sketchwalk. It was the last sketchwalk of the year 2013. Again, it was a great turn out and wishing more sketching fun in the new year 2014!
Dempsey Hill used to be the former Birtish army barracks and to most Singaporeans, the Central Manpower Base of Singapore (CMPB) where the young men reported for National Service to begin their compulsory military training for two and a half year after they completed their A level at 18-years-old. Males of my generation are still able to identify the parade square, and the old CMPB office premise. For me, I fondly remember this place as one of the locations for Singapore Biennale in 2009.
