This watercolour was inspired by my trip to Little India which is in the southern suburbs of Singapore. I walked down the busy Serangoon road and found this scene, I didn’t have time to take out my sketchbook just then, instead I took a bunch of reference photos.
Singapore is so fascinating. It’s cultural contrasts make the city so vibrant.
I very nearly threw this painting in the bin. If you are curious to know why look at my latest vlog on YouTube.
Tourist filming me while I sketch her! Miyajima, Japan. From my sketchbook.
I’m back in Sweden now! It was so nice to visit my son and his wife in Iwakuni, south of Hiroshima. Japan is such an interesting place, it really is foreign to me and that is what is so cool and interesting with the place.
