A Sketch Outside National Gallery


180518_CityHall Colour washes were added later to a sketch I did on location on the steps outside National Gallery on 18 May. On that day I did the sketch, there was no more ink and no more pages to sketch and I did not bring any colours and brushes.

I don't always go to the city area but that day, the weather was good and the view captivating. The iconic Marina Bay Sands on the left is designed by Moshe Safdie with the sky park straddling three hotel towers. In the last decade, the skyscrapers were sprouting out like mushrooms behind the classic orange tiled roof Cricket Club Singapore which was built in the 1860s. The contrasting horizontal classic building and the vertical towers together with the green Padang (the big lawn) in the front forming the beautiful skyline of Central Business District of Singapore.
