Watercolour Art (Watercolor Art) – My First Contact with the masters
Watercolour art first came into my life in early 1960 when I was in the secondary school evening class and was helping out at my late father’s hawker stall. While art has a broad domain, I had peculiar interest in watercolor painting.
I had a fortune to observe some of the masters in Singapore watercolor art scene then, and one of my most admired artist was Lim Cheng Hoe. His style of watercolour painting had inspired me to practice the fine art on a continual basis.
As I could not afford any formal training then, I treasured every visit to the watercolour art exhibitions to study the paintings by the masters, their painting compositions, their execution of brush strokes, their choice of colour combination and contrast.
By studying the watercolour techniques applied by the masters I managed to learn faster and developed my own style of painting after years of practice and experimenting.
Watercolour Art – My Creation, My Presentation
My subject of watercolour art paintings come in landscapes, seascapes, portraits, wildlife, birds and some with moral meanings. Some of my paintings can be found in local art galleries, while most of them can be seen at my art studio.
Watercolour painting has since then taken up a big space in my heart and my time and spurred me to invest more time and effort into mastering watercolour techniques.
