These watercolour paintings were created from scenes captured at Singapore River. When I started watercolour painting I used to go to the Singapore River in the late 1950s to watch and observe Lim Cheng Hoe and other artists on how they sketch and paint. They were known as The Sunday Group that would usually gather on Sunday at Singapore River to paint. I would go on every Sunday to pay attention to how they paint and on Monday I return to the Singapore River, to the same spot, to practice and experiment the different ways of painting on my own.
