I never like to visit the dentist. I found that the sound that the machineries made drive me nuts and i would shrink my body upon hearing it. The dentista is a kind lady, has a short hair, but wear a smile all the time. According to her, i have some decay on my molar and she would put temporary medication for the time being. Would have to see her in 2 weeks time for permanent feeling. Despite disliking to go to visit the dentist, i still thank God for the existence of dentist that helps to ease my pain.

sketched this when i came back, not able to eat my breakfast. i find drawing things without scale is so fun and hilarious, lol.

proyecto pequenito 1 : wedding potrait painting (4 hours)

i did this for my church brother Peter and Sophia who is getting married this 25 september 2010. Came out with this idea to watercolor potrait. Was a little skeptical as i'm bad at drawing human. So, the materials needed : aquarelle water color paper, 8'X12' photoframe, pocket watercolor set, and the sample photo that i'm going to paint. Computer playing the singapore series " The Pupil" which helped me passed the time pretty fast :)
so step by step in painting this romantic drawing :
1. measure and sketch the figures on the watercolor paper.
2. apply colors, start from background, then human figure, then detail it up with more strokes and shadows.
3. Outlining with a sharper pencil. In this case, i felt pen artlining the figure could be a little to harsh, so i suggested pencil. Detail the drawing with strokes.
4. Frame the drawing and i'm done!

Time taken : 4 hours

Suffolk house and Wesley Church

Went sketching with Chunkeat some time ago in Suffolk house and Wesley Church. It was an incredible day. We had tau sa pheah and sketch under good weather.

the suffolk house. Though it was nicely restored, but i wasnt very happy because they charge RM 10 for entrance (visit only). Its a bit too pricy. The guards was in front of the gate, not very friendly for visitors. Nevertheless, the building is beautiful.
Wesley Church. i always wanted to sketch this beautiful church and my dream came true.

Good old Salamanca

i shall never forget Salamanca. the good old place where i spent the best july ever.
now this is a sketch of Salamanca. 
 this sketch is about the famous bridge overlooking the beautiful skyline of Salamanca town.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower , La Tour Eiffel  is an 1889 iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tallest building in Paris, it is the most-visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. Named for its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair.
The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. It was the tallest man-made structure in the world from its completion until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France after the 2004 Millau Viaduct.
Amazed by the structure, i decided to have a sketch practice since it is uni mid-term break now. i did really enjoy the process. Sketching and painting is really a luxurious enjoyment especially in busy days.
step by step in painting this :
1. Sketch and paint the base
2. Start outlining the eiffel tower
3. Outlining the rest

4. Tada, its done and i'm in Paris now!
