Old Supreme Court & Raffles City

I painted this watercolour of Old Supreme Court and Raffles City while waiting in line to get tickets to the last of Neil Gaiman’s upcoming talks during the Singapore Writers Festival.  I thought I’d be doing sketches of the people in the queue, but this view from the Arts House of such stark architectural contrast sustained my interest for most of my time there. Many flaws with my technique, but it was still fun to paint. Next time I think I’ll try painting a simpler subject in more detail for practice. Oh yes, special thanks to the generous girl who shared her umbrella with me.
