In light of preparing myself for the next travel destination (let’s keep it a secret for now), I walked 13km from my place, along Punggol Serangoon Reservoir and back home. I took two stops – to sketch and of course, dinner.
Normally, the sky isn’t this dark. Though black clouds were obviously rolling in, I knew that they were there just to say hi before making their way elsewhere. My assumption lasted for only a few minutes! The rain poured two to three minutes into drawing the picturesque view! Climbed over the waist-high fence (almost sprained my ankle), then ran to a shelter nearby. Thankfully, I chose a good spot to sketch, just metres away from the shelter. Cyclists, runners and their pets made their way to the shelter too. It poured quite a bit, and I was really worried about my art materials! They CAN’T be wet!
When the rain stopped, it was already dark, so inevitably, I cheated a little – the painting had to be completed by recalling the colours from my memory. This is the shortest sketch ever!
