Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Dragon Fruit

Posted on: 19/07/2010

Here in Kuching everybody seems to have a dragon fruit cactus in the backyard. This is a portrait of the one in ours. It’s the smaller but sweeter variety with the scary looking magenta coloured flesh.

I painted the flower first, even then I had to resort to photographs as the light and the flower faded very fast. The red fruit was in and out of the fridge as I worked on the details. Then it disappeared from the fridge.

The culprit – a hungry brother. If the painting of the fruit looks kind of unfinished, you know why!
