Old Singapore River-Always on My Mind
An Old Singapore River Scene - Always on My Mind
Framed 40 x 30 inches
Acrylic and watercolour 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 artists who combines acrylic media with watercolour. He achieves the textured effect on the boats and buildings using the acrylic and a 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.
