Singapore sketches.

We were in Singapore for a few days recently and apart from devouring sushi, morning noon and night, I managed to pack in a few sketches. I found the climate very tiring for walking and sketching…heavy, hot and humid! But for the rest, I enjoyed every bit of the trip(except the flight there and back of course, but that is only becasue I hate flying by default).

Singapore is rich in culture and history, two things that I thoroughly enjoy. Discovering cultures different than mine and learning about their history truly enriches me. I feel fortunate to have been able to learn a bit more of Singapore…next on my list is Japan towards the end of the year, depending on the circumstances. We were in Singapore when Japan was hit recently and I sadly witnessed many people cry for family they’ve lost or haven’t heard of back in Japan.

    It’s interesting to see Singapore through your eyes. I like knowing more about the history of the places I visit, too. I’ve been to Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Bangkok but not Singapore which I understand is the cleanest city in the world with it’s prohibitions on spitting and littering and even gum chewing!

  10. Don’t know how I missed these, thought there was just the one at the top – terrific sketches Ronell! You’ve caught so much atmosphere and colour in your wonderful wash and linework. Lovely Singapore!

  11. Wonderful travel sketches!!! I particularly love the one of the market and the temple. Like you, I just love traveling and absorbing a bit of the foreign culture.
