Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Hoya imperilalis

Posted on: 08/11/2012

The hoya with the largest bloom! It was quite difficult to capture the correct colour though, because of the waxy reflective surface of the bloom. In the morning light it is a pinkish mauve but in the afternoon, it shows more burgundy. I have depicted it as more burgundy as I have more time to paint in the afternoon. Morning light changes fast!

I used a hot pressed watercolour paper I found at Popular Bookstore ”Campap” This paper would be very good for painting practice, but to show the brilliancy of professional quality watercolour paints, it’s back to those very expensive European papers. No way around it.

Meantime, it’s a dog’s life –

Sootie waits patiently every morning outside the bedroom door for her human to wake up and take her for her morning walk

Binkie takes a nap under watchful eyes…
