Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

Posted on: 13/09/2010

Wishing all my Muslim friends and relatives Selamat Hari Raya Aidilftri!

Here’s a wonderfully decorated surau in one of the kampungs in Kuching, shining in the white mid-morning light.

I painted this picture with Holbein’s aureolin, a true warm yellow. Despite dire warnings in various watercolour books about aureolin, it hasn’t gone brown yet. I hope the formula for this pigment has been changed because I bought a couple of tubes before I read about the warning about aureolin’s tendency to turn brown!

Painted on Fabriano Studio 140lbs paper 12 x 16”.

Hi Elise,
Thanks for droppin’by. I’ve made a link to your blog. And thanks for the SHR wishes. The small surau is very bright indeed. I like the way the plank walk is shared by the surau and the kampung houses. The message board ( black board) reminds me of my primary school learning days. Have a nice weekend.
Mood.
