From Boat Quay

Boat Quay is best sketched in the morning when some of the oldest shophouses along the Singapore River have the sun on them. When I arrived later in the day they were backlit, so I sat at one of the restaurants along the quay and overpaid for a lemonade to get this view. I’m sure it’s not the first time an artist has done that.

There hasn’t been time to post anything that I’ve done during the symposium but if you are on Facebook and want to see the diverse and wonderful drawings done during the past few days use the hashtag #usksingapore2015.

    Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Enjoy!!


  4. I love your work; I find it so inspiring and I DO plan to start doing my homework soon for your Craftsy class. It’s definitely helped my landscapes improve. Thanks for sharing your lovely painting, Shari!

    Great sketch. I like the way you raised the view and cut out what was probably a fairly messy foreground.

    BTW, I had a look at the Facebook page… did you know that one of your lessons was in a video posted by Teoh Yi Chie? This is the YouTube link…

    With the recent proliferation of your appearances in videos etc, I am beginning to wonder if you are one of those people that just have to jump in front of a camera and perform every time they see one?


    • I will have to check out the video. There is so
      Much social media here that it’s hard to follow. There are two
      People who are documenting the symposium through sketches as well. They attend all the events and sketch the sketchers. It’s overwhelming and very exciting!

    Hi Shari, just curious … are those 3 electric fans attached to the exterior wall
    on the right edge of your painting?


  7. Gorgeous colors.
