Old Singapore River
An Old Singapore River Scene - Always on My Mind
Framed 41 x 33.5 inches
Mixed media on paper by Wan Soon Kam
A distant perspective of Boat Quay, the detachment from the place of activity conveys objective contemplation of life.
Wan Soon Kam is one of the rare artist who combines the acrylic media with watercolour. He achieves the textured effect on the boats and buildings using acrylic and softer wash method on the river. The exploration of different textures allows for spatial perspective. The foreground is covered with more detailed illustrations. The brushwork in the background is lightly and delicately spread, indicating a further distance.
