This is a watercolour painting I painted some years ago in Singapore. This watercolor painting was painted in my home studio from reference photo that I took. I like the light and shadow fall on the children and the walls, also I like that beautiful Malay costume and I am happy to be able to quickly capture the natural movement of the children with my camera, so I could look at it for the painting. I have kept this watercolour painting in my portfolio file and I have not shown this painting or posted in my painting website publicly before.

Today, I painted another painting of rubber plantation. The inspiration comes from Kota Tinggi rubber plantation where there is a meditation centre, called Santisukkharama. The idea of this painting comes from the views near the stairs outside the meditation hall on the second floor.

This is first time I approached Bodhi tree and painted Bodhi leaves in this manner. Most likely I shall paint a few more paintings of Bodhi leaves in near future. I am happy with the visual result and the composition.

I have been practicing art full time since 1986. I have exhibited in more than 80 group exhibitions and held 11 one-man art exhibition. I paint every day (daily painter). I have become fond of making small paintings recently. The medium I use is acrylic. All of the small paintings are painted either on canvas or canvas panel.

I share my many years of artistic expression experience to those who wish to learn painting from me. More information about my art class or painting lessons are at http://pabha.com/ArtClass/
