Pearl of the Orient

This next series of my travel sketches were done in Penang, Malaysia. Only an hour away from my hometown, Singapore, it's a great place to get away.  What I love most about Penang is its heritage.  Especially how painstakingly Georgetown preserves its buildings down to the very last detail is immensely intriguing.  ENJOY!

Kedai Basical Shop
Upon finishing this sketch, the owner appeared out of nowhere and bought the piece of art.
