July Sketchwalk at National Museum of Singapore



Hi Sketchers!

We are collaborating with National Museum of Singapore (NMS) for the exhibition "OFF / ON: Everyday Technology that Changed our Lives, 1970s – 2000s" for July 2022 Sketchwalk on 30 July 2022 (Sat). Here’s the summary of this exhibition:
“Step into this immersive showcase and explore how everyday technological tools changed and shaped the lives of Singaporeans from the 1970s to 2000s. Set against the backdrop of the nation's industrialisation and rapid transformation period, the showcase takes visitors through familiar local settings at home, work and other social spaces with a small, yet specially curated selection of technology icons from Singapore's past. These include the typewriter and personal computer, as well as telecommunications and entertainment devices such as the payphone, pager and the technicolour television set. Presented as part of the National Museum's Collecting Contemporary Singapore initiative, visitors can look forward to getting to know and reconnecting with some of these technologies, through several themed installations with complementary gamified experiences including an escape room activity.”
For more information, you can check out the link:
You are welcome to sketch in this exhibition for a duration of one hour. This is to allow others to sketch in the next time slot and to avoid crowding. Sign up is on first-come-first-served basis.

Old Photos

Facebook memories! Look at these old photos. We were so young then in 2013, Barcelona. I was one of the instructors and now some of these participants are masters, veterans in USk. Thanks Bรฉliza Mendes for the photo.
After this USk were at Paraty (5th) then Singapore (6th)! 

Hope to get back to USk global community again! 

On second photo from right: Simone Ridyard, Josu Maroto Peรฑagaricano, Vรญctor Swasky and Chris Haldane. Don't recognize the lady after Chris though.

11 years ago on this day

This photo pop out in my Facebook as one of the memories on this day 11 July 2011. The resotred Bukit Timah Railway Staion was officially opened on 1 July. More details at this link.

I didn't remember I was there contributing to the green corridor under an organisaion called "Ideas Worth Doing.Org". 

A check found out that it was related to TEDx

Y is for YELLOW

Continuing with the lesson, we applied the colour theory to urban sketching in Singapore and Lisbon context. Using yellow and purple and their mixtures plus tints and shades. I also reminded the participants to leave some white spaces here and there and exploring textures and patterns. Participants were having so much fun and made new discoveries during the zoom workshop.

My first post on the workshop was on 7 Oct 2021 at this link

Lisbon Alphabet 2022

These are the exploration work with the participants. 

I was invited to be one of the instructors for Lisbon Alphabet 2022 and I conducted a class via zoom on 2 July 2022. The alphabet assigned to me was Y. So I developed a lesson plan based on "Y is for YELLOW". 

We had so much fun exploring the colour yellow, its complimentary colour and the opposite intensity. I first introduced Johannes Itten's colour wheel and we made a simple colour wheel using watercolours. Next we explore the primary colours and their complimentary, then I let the participants made some discoveries by mixing some colours as per instructions. 

Later part of the workshop, we focus on YELLOW, PURPLE and the opposite intensity and their tints and shades plus some simple textures and patterns. Before the class ended, we explored how to apply the colour theory to urban sketching. Simplification is the key!

My first post on the workshop was on 7 Oct 2021 at this link

Watercolours in Pocket Moleskine

I usually did quick line sketches and this is one of the few with colours in the pocket Moleskine sketchbook which is not suitable for watercolours. So I had to do it real quick. It looks better when it is flat and dried after a few months since Feb this year.

The tourists are returning

Tourists are returning to Singapore. You hear them speaking foreign language at the next table at meal time. You see them with their hand luggage. You observe they are all wearing hats, sunglasses and scraves. This is a family from Indonesia.

First Visit to an Exhibition

This is probably the first visit to an exhibition after the pandemic. Har Sai Por's exhibition at STPI, Singapore Tyler Print Institute. Interestingly, I cannot find the FULL NAME of STPI on their website and the whole history is also like, wipped out! It now appeared to be another atas (upmarket in Malay) NGO institution catering for the art commercial world.

Mee Pok Time

In the sketch, it said Meepok time means having a bowl of noodles at Lau Lim Mee Pok at Simpang Bedok. One of my favourite hang-out places for breakfast.

Friday, July 01, 2022

Breakfast place

This was drawn recently in May before going to Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle. I like the coffee at this place and I will always takeway kopi O, kopi, teh and teh halia for my potter-friends. Today I know this food court I frequent a lot is called Food Master Food Court instead of Sheng Siong Food Court.

Quick sketch at Dinner

Think this is the first and only time we had breakfast at Rise and just before Circuit Breaker.

Monday, June 20, 2022

Old sketches not posted before

I used to do quick sketches to capture activities or places in a Moleskine A6 pocket sketchbook, I will be progressively posting these sketches found in a sketchbook. This one was done having a 'ME' time at Percolate, a boutique cafe along Bedok North Avenue 3. I needed quiet time to clear my mind after a tradgy happened in the family - the sudden death of my beloved nephew, my brother's son. My father's only grandson. Now thinking back, I secretly wished the circuit breaker came earlier and may be things will be different. Sigh!

Sketches in a A6 sketchbook

So why do we sketch? It’s back to the original intent as shown in this collage of sketches in a A6 Moleskine pocket sketchbook. They have not been posted before. This is the reason why I started sketching. I am now going back to the basic of sketching capturing activities in a small sketchbook.

I only added the water to complete the piece. Some people like it light washes, some like it with heavier brush strokes. Many ways of interpreting the same scene. I have done so many pieces on the same view and every piece is distinctively different.

1. Have your mask on at all times. Make your way to the location, be aware of surroundings, and maintain necessary distancing.
2. Challenge yourself to explore hidden corners that hasn't been seen/drawn yet; this will also help prevent too many of us crowding the same perching points.
3. Post your sketches, snapshots and videos online — ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ก๐š๐ฌ๐ก๐ญ๐š๐ ๐ฌ #๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ค๐ฌ๐  — so everyone can easily find the day's artistic output.
4. Some sketch leaders will go around to catch you in action for posts on Facebook and Instagram, so look out for them!
