Smaller Watercolour Pieces

Trying to do a big format this morning and could only do so much but really enjoyed catching up and chatting with sketcher-friends as we all sat along the wall under the shelter when it was drizzling!
Work in progress

Centre Point Mural

A forgotten work since 2016. An old post here

4 of us did this very big mural wall at basement 2 of Centrepoint. The artwork was laser printed on the big metal panels, a successful experiment at that time. Not etched, not vinyl sheet.

Also featured on URA

Last Sketchwalk of the Year

Today we have the last sketchwalk of the year at Toa Payoh. It was attended by so many new and young faces. I was also happy to meet old friends too. The point blocks in this location including block 179 were served as accommodation for athletes for the 1973 SEAP Games. The 1973 Southeast Asian Peninsular Games (SEAP Games) was the first international sports event ever held in Singapore. Toa Payoh's swimming complex and stadium were chosen to serve as the competition and training venues, while Toa Payoh Public Library on the extreme left of this sketch was used as the secretariat building for the Games.

Mount Fuji

From Hokkiado to Tokyo, I saw snow, then Mount Fuji from the plane on 24 Dec 2022 in different directions inbound and outbound from New Chitose Airport to Hadena Airport and from Hadena Airport to Singapore. Bye bye Japan.

New Chitose Airport

Arrive at New Chitose Airport on 18 Dec 2022, the snow made it so magical that made up for the stressful custom process at Haneda Airport that we all missed our connecting flights involving SIA, JAL and ANA

Vacation at Niseko

Click Niseko to know more about this place.

This year, we travelled to Japan from 17 - 24 Dec for a family skiing trip. I didn't ski so I sketched the view from our AYA Niseko Villa at Niseko Hirafu. Outdoor temperature was around -3 degC but inside the 3-storey villa it was very comfortable.

Niseko is best known for receiving the world's best powder snow throughout winter, and as a relaxed outdoor lifestyle destination during the summer months. Niseko is located on Japan's northern island prefecture of Hokkaido, about 3 hours drive away from New Chitose Airport.

There are four skiig resorts in Niseko namely:
Niseko Hanazono Resort
Niseko Tokyu Grand HIRAFU
Niseko Village Ski Resort and
Niseko Annupuri International Ski Area
