Hi Sketchers!
We will be heading to Tanjong Rhu Promenade this month! The area is quite big, so please feel free to explore the area!
Weather can be very hot and less shelters. Best to bring/standby your hat/cap, portable stool/chair, portable fan, sunscreens, umbrella, sunglasses or whatever tools that can protect you from the sun. Importantly, please also remember to drink lots of water to hydrate yourself too!
Some of the places that you may want to sketch:
- Tanjong Rhu Footbridge
- Tanjong Rhu Lookout Tower
- Panorama view across Marina Reservoir (with city buildings like Golden Mile, Singapore Flyer etc)
- Singapore Indoor Stadium
- OCBC Square
- Kallang Leisure Park
- Kallang Wave Mall
----------------
In light of the COVID situation, we urge everyone to remain cautious, mask on at all times and with the updated COVID SMM. Let's all play a part to stay safe!

Time: 9:30AM - 12.30PM
Nearest MRT station: Stadium (CC6)

Our Beautiful Skyline


I only added the water to complete the piece. Some people like it light washes, some like it with heavier brush strokes. Many ways of interpreting the same scene. I have done so many pieces on the same view and every piece is distinctively different.
