Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Archive for February 14th, 2010

And instead of the ubiquitous old boring oranges, here are two varieties of the auspicious pineapple for the lunar new year – wang lai!

This is the popular Sarikei variety, sweet, juicy and crisp.

Fabriano Studio cold pressed 130lbs paper 12 x18” with Winsor & Newton colours, New Gamboge, Phthalo blue, Oxide of Chromium, Permanent Alizarin and Diozaxine purple.

This red one, according to the fruitseller, is imported from Johor.

I can’t tell you if it is good eating because by the time I completed my pencil roughs, my colour roughs, my detailed pencil drawing and my colour study, the fruit was well on its way to becoming BEER.

Cotmans cold pressed 130lbs paper 12 x 18” with Winsor & Newton colours – New Gamboge, Permanent Alizarin, Diozaxine purple, Phthalo blue, Raw Sienna and Holbein’s Vermilion.
