Final sketch with watercolour of a nice corner coffeeshop along Neil Road.
A quick warm-up sketch at 2nd location.
We had our official USK-Sg sketchwalk today and we went back to explore Duxton Hill. Took the group around the fringe of Duxton, walking down Neil road and followed by Craig road before heading back to URA through Duxton Hill.

We had a blast at our recently book launch and exhibition opening at Urban Redevelopment Authority. Our friends, colleagues and fellow sketchers came out in full force to support us. The excitement and energy was palpable. We are also very happy that the book we put together was very well received. I think we sold close to 500 copies on the launch day. Now I can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our hardwork.

Warm up sketch at Smith Street.
Mosque Street @ Chinatown by PaulArtSG, on Flickr">
It has been a busy but exciting week preparing for our upcoming book launch and exhibition which opens this Friday in Singapore. We are really excited about our new book which documents Urban streetscapes in Singapore. Yesterday I managed to find sometime to sketch near our exhibtion venue. This street has an old indian-inspired mosque and at the fringe of our chinatown. You can almost see one of the minaret peeking out on the left. The sun was setting, the green walls and orange roofs were gorgeous and just had to capture it. The splashing and dabbing was a nice way to end the busy day.

You are all invited to Urbansketchers-Singapore's book launch & exhibition on the 21st October at Urban Renewal Authority's atrium. I am one of the main contributor to this awesome 250 pages book. We have worked really hard to compile hundreds of sketches drawn over the last 2 years. This book, a joint project with URA depicts life and scenes in and from Singapore. Pre-order and get the book at only $39 instead of the usual $49.
Today I only managed to only do 1 quick sketch at balestier during our informal ad-hoc sketchwalk before dashing to work.
I arrived earlier at work then expected so managed to squeeze in some time after a quick lunch to draw a part of Boat Quay. All the shophouses here at this historical site are now turned into restaurants and bars. Rather awful if you asked me. Its noisy and chaotic. Quite a different scene compared how early immigration and settlement started here when Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore more than a 100 years ago.
