Marvin Chew shares in this book his stunning artworks painted between 2003 and 2009.
This book is divided into four chapters: In the first chapter, Marvin included works on Singapore cityscape, river scenes in Singapore and Malaysia, particularly Kuching city, his hometown.
In the second chapter, Marvin showed paintings depicting street scenes in and around Singapore and Malaysia. Shophouses are his most favourite subjects, often painted during his numerous plein air sessions.
The third chapter contains paintings on landscapes and rural villages, proving his versatility in painting whatever he fancies. A common theme in his landscape paintings has been his beautiful trees and foliage which are done with masterful calligraphic strokes
In the last chapter , Marvin included three step-by-step demonstrations, where he showed how
he tackled the subjects in his own style.
This is perhaps just the beginning of Marvin's artistic career. With his talent and enthusiasm, hopefully we will see more glorious watercolours in the not too distant future, and beyond.
