Painting Kuching in Watercolour

At Santubong

Posted on: 02/02/2010

I was practicing painting backlit waves crashing against the rocks. This is where, in the surging tide, the half submerged rocks look unnervingly like a crocodile.

Done on 15 x 11” Lana aquarelle 140lbs rough paper with Winsor & Newton colours. This is a fine quality French made paper I bought some years ago, quite expensive but a joy to use. My amateurish washes came out brilliant, the textures beautiful, I began to have a glimpse of what might be possible if only I practice more!

Elsie,
This transports me back to my childhood, of days spent in idyllic tranquility in one of the bungalows half-way up the hillock(now all long gone) overlooking this scene that you have so ingeniously captured.
Thanks for for the memory,
Your literary cousin Maggie
