Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Longans

Posted on: 09/06/2011

Here’s a bunch of sweet, fragrant and juicy longans or in Malay, “mata kuching” (literally, “cats’eyes”).

There are a number of stories about how Kuching got its name, but the most reasonable is that the name is derived from Bukit Mata Kuching, the hill on the bank of the Sarawak river where there used to be a clump of mata kuching trees and where there are now 5 star hotels and shopping complexes.

I had a nice snack after painting the fruits. Even the smaller green ones were sweet – yum yum!

Painted with Holbein colours on Fabriani Artistico Extra White 140lbs hotpressed paper 9” by 12”.
