Biro drawing of Chaffinch bird

Chaffinch drawing

Spring is the season of new beginnings. With fresh blooms, come baby birds and there are plenty this season 🐦 It brings me joy to sit the backyard and watching the birds flit by.

Augmented reality Art exhibition at ARmenian park, Penang

AR Art exhibition by Perk reality

Opens tomorrow at ARmenian park.
If you’re in Penang go check out this AUGMENTED REALITY ART EXHIBITION celebrating international womens day.

Download Perk reality app on Google play or Apple store. Scan the signboards at ARmenian park. See the artworks come to life.

It’s so exciting to be part of this exhibition because the Perk reality app has made it possible to view artworks in a beautiful outdoor space anytime of the day come rain or shine.

Blue and white ginger jars

I have 3 artworks being featured in this augmented reality exhibition in the park. I chose these three paintings because the park is in the heart of Penang heritage zone and this series celebrates my Chinese heritage as well as my Malaysian nationality.

Pen drawing of Eurasian Magpie

Pen drawing of Eurasian Magpie

Look at the good in everything.
It’s cold outside and I’m hiding under the covers in bed. Then I saw a magpie walking across the roof minding her own business. I felt compelled to draw. This is an example of how motivation can come in any form and at any time.
Thank you Maggie the Magpie for the little push today 💙

Pen drawing of a kingfisher

Kingfisher drawing

Practice, practice, practice. That’s the only way to improve.
Drawing of kingfisher using a blue ball point pen. I’ve decided I quite like drawing with a blue pen. I think I’m going to continue with this. The colour just makes me happy 💙

Oriental pied hornbill

Oriental pied hornbill

I was going to draw and then I got distract by some gardening that lasted all afternoon, and then I went for a long walk and tired myself out. Luckily I remembered I had this drawing of an oriental pied hornbill in oil pastels on paper that I did last year after my cousin sent me a photo of a pair of them visiting their balcony in Singapore.

Olive backed sunbird

Olive backed sunbird

This sunbird has given me so much joy. They have moved backed into my balcony after a year of hiatus. The chicks just hatched and the parents have been flying in and out the balcony raising the babies. I think there are 2 chicks but I haven’t looked.

Sketch of the day no 1494 in my moleskine sketchbook is of an Olive backed sunbird.
