Kampong GlamPosted: July 19, 2015
Between the long flight, the overwhelming heat and the jet lag, it’s been a slow start to sketching in Singapore, but this morning I finally got my sketching brain going again. Like nearby Little India, Kampong Glam is one of those heritage Singapore neighbourhoods made up of tiny streets of colourful shophouses, cafes, fabric stores, and a gold-domed mosque. The thing is, you have to get out early to sketch because later in the day the heat makes it impossible, at least for a Northerner like me. I found this view looking down a side street where, fortunately, there was a cafe and a spot under a giant umbrella.
