Waterloo Street at dawnPosted: July 20, 2015
Painting in Singapore is a little more challenging than I expected because of the humidity – the paper just never dries. It never occurred to me that this would be a problem, but if you control the wetness on the brush (keep it drier than usual) it becomes manageable. I was on Waterloo Street by 7 am, hoping to get there before the crowds gathering around the two temples on that section of the pedestrian mall. The vendors selling bunches of flowers and red sticks of incense were just setting up, and the street lights were still on. It’s always a magical sight to see a city waking up.
