I took out this painting from my painting store and I have displayed it on my wall. I like the use of colours and powerful marks on the painting. I like the composition too.
Celebration with Change. Acrylic on canvas. 120 x 100 cm. By Prabhakara Jimmy Quek.
I found some Chinese paintings in the folder. These Chinese paintings were painted by me more than 30 years ago when I was a student. These paintings brought me many memories. I painted this cat painting. The cat was one of the cats that I had at that time.
I still love this simple artwork. I like the simplicity of the composition of this painting and the minimum use of ink and brush strokes.
When learning traditional Chinese painting, I began with copying paintings that my teacher had demonstrated to me. I practiced it many times so to learn how to control the strokes and inks.
This birds painting was an example that was just an exercise of copying practise. Whenever I think of Chinese painting, I feel thankful to my teacher Mr Tan Seng Yong who was so kind to teach me painting.
Below is a painting that I painted in year 1973. I used Chinese ink on rice paper to experiment with an abstract composition.
I painted this small painting some time ago. I hope you enjoy this simple painting which was executed with free strokes and colours composition.
