Former Geylang Fire Station

150228_photobyBerniceI did two sketches this morning. Here is the first one at the corner of Paya Lebar and Sims Avenue. The iconic building with the red doors is the former Geylang Fire Station (1929-2002). It was the second oldest fire station in Singapore after the Central Fire Station at Hill Street.

Bernice Lau, a new sketcher took this photo of me sketching. My set up was very simple, I just put my moleskine on the floor and used a smaller moleskine as paperweight. I had a small sketching stool and I used Hero fountain pen, a waterbrush and watercolours. No tripod, no easel, no sophisticated brushes, no elaborate palette and no water container. I am going back to basic and traveling really light!
