Sketch of the day

My daily art in my Moleskine sketchbook

I am the Tiger

Chinese Tiger painting

Drawing of tiger, inspired by ZHAO SHAO’ANG (1905-1998), HE QIYUAN (1899-1970), ETC. | Tiger in the Bush
I love Chinese paintings. The old masters were copied over and over by artists because the paintings are not just about the subject, but also the artist. The energy and brush strokes of the artist give life to the subject depicted. Chinese aesthetics also value simplicity and breathing space. It’s interesting to compare the differences in the approach to art and philosophy between the East and West.

We are soon ushering in the year of the tiger and I must say I do love tigers.
Tigers symbolize power, bravery and drives away evil spirits.
This Sketch of a traditional Chinese tiger art outside a temple in my hometown is placed there as a guardian to protect the entrance.
This is week 6 of my hand rehab and drawing everyday helps the healing process. I’m learning to draw with my non dominant hand as proof that practice makes your a better artist.

Happy Sunday my friends.
How to become a better artist? Practice makes your drawing better.
Here’s a quick 20 mins sketch of the majestic Malayan Tiger using my non dominant hand as part of my rehab physio journey.
It’s week 6 since I broke my hand. It is definitely healing but I don’t have full mobility yet. Hopefully soon 🙏

If you’re tired, take a rest before you fly

Dragonfly drawing

If you’re tired, take a rest before you fly.

I’m taking some wisdom from the Dragonfly today. It’s OK to take some down time. Even the Dragonfly doesn’t fly all day long. With my hand recovering, I can’t do things at full capacity. At week 5, I’m recovering nicely but there are still limitations to what I can do. Patience is a big lesson learnt, and not feeling guilty about culling certain activities like a full workout and lifting heavy objects. I’m still continuing to draw with my healing hand and I’m really enjoying drawing with my non dominant hand. It’s good practice to look at things from a different perspective. It’s also made me wonder whether my art is determined by which hand I draw with. The answer is clearly no, as its still drawn by me. Something to ponder over …

And just like that…

Nobody talks anymore.

On another note, thank you everyone who have been asking about my hand. It is healing since I fell 5 weeks ago. And no, I did not break my drawing hand, but the last 3 sketches of the new year are drawn with my healing hand as part of my rehab. I need to exercise my hand and get it strong again. 🙏
