I spent my last day in Singapore in Chinatown, with Liz Steel from Australia. China town was a tricky place to sketch in, especially in the narrow market streets, where vendors opening up their shops made our view smaller and smaller, moving their merchandise out into the street, in front of where we were sitting. However, it was such a visual feast to draw there, with all the strong colours, old shop houses and people everywhere.
And then, in the evening, the moment had come to grab my luggage at the hotel, and head out to the airport to start the journey home. A full day in 31°C humid heat is not a nice preparation for a long night flight. Changi airport lived up to it´s good reputation when I found the showers in one of the lounges. 🙂
Tried out a new fude nib fountain pen waiting for the last leg of the trip in Frankfurt. I rarely use water soluble ink, but this is what came with the pen, and a waterbrush made it a quite nice experience to play around with.
