2013, Sat 31 Aug. I was imagining that if roses grew in Mars, its colours would be reversed. And it would look rather stone-like. But it would still be as beautiful.

“Candy Shirt” (#242: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Fri 30 Aug. I keep thinking of candy when I see shirts of this pattern and colours. This sketch was relatively easy though I had some trepidations about painting in the shirt. It would be tough to make the striped patten to look recognisable like cloth, with folds and yet still look uniform. And it was. But not as difficult as I thought it would be. Though the effect is far from perfect, it doesn’t look half bad.

2013, Thurs 29 Aug. Nike has done such an extensive marketing job over the decades that their brand is instantly recognisable. This guy didn’t look like a sportsman at all but who knows? He could be some sporting ancient Greek god hidden beneath his mundane disguise.

“Wednesday’s Worker” (#240: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Wed 28 Aug. I’m mindful not to stereotype people. Still, I was quite sure he was a migrant worker. Because of his “pre-iPhone era” non-touch screen, hard-button phone. Those second-hand phones (maybe third, fourth etc) are popular among migrant workers because they are relatively cheap. And they can get better phone ‘mileage’ with a pre-paid phone card. That said, I could be entirely wrong about him, where he came from and what he did for a living. Stereotyping, as I said.

2013, Tue 27 Aug. OK, maybe this was a reflection of my mood today. One doesn’t have to feel blue on Mondays only. Saw this guy standing near the door in the morning commute. I thought his features were prominent enough to attempt a study of faces.

“Volunteer” (#238: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Mon 26 Aug. This was sketched last week and completed today. My colleague was a volunteer at the conference that I was a conference attendee (WLIC 2013, if that means anything to you). He was taking a short break after being on his feet most of the day, like many of the volunteers. I happened to pop by the volunteer room and thought I should do a sketch. It’s not that a realistic rendering of him though.

2013, Sun 25 Aug. An abstract piece. I’ve not had formal training in art or art history. I’m guessing that abstract art is more about invoking feelings (of its viewer) in a visceral way. For me, it was trying to achieve a harmony between hues and forms. It’s a lovely morning today.
