Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Buah Tampoi

Posted on: 14/03/2012

One of the most expensive fruits on the market, when you get only a little nub of sweet sour pulp for RM4.00 a kilo! If I wasn’t interested in painting local fruits, I wouldn’t even consider buying.

I painted this on a hot pressed sketching paper block I found at the Technographics store in Satok. Surprisingly the paper didn’t cockle toomuch, but then I was careful not to use too much water. The paper is OK for quick studies, but not for fine details and also somehow the colours turned out a bit dull. I used a limited palette here of Aureolin, Winsor Orange, Raw Sienna, Payne’s grey and Ultramarine blue. I added a bit of Cobalt violet to the stems for a powdery look.
