So sad ☹️my bandsaw has rusted stiff, the star and saviour for the last major wood project has been neglected 😶... as I begin to switch hats and literally gears/bushings- time to bring all the toys out and service them.

... and incidentally I wondered what would Van Gogh look like if he was painted classically--you know that smooth soft edge style. Well with some luck I will soon find out. ☺️

Well gang something fun to share. One of the best parts about teaching is doing demonstrations on artists' techniques that i won't usually apply in my own work. In most cases you would demo a little and get students to come over to view the process. And once in a while when no one needs any help I get into the mood and really push details for a demo piece, this Van Gogh self portrait is one of them...

Here we go again. Something new. Time to play around and work out the dimensions and engineering issues. I sort of like this stage, because you can play with the form and not make the models yet. That's the beauty of using software. Have to love the undo button sometimes...

Random post, portrait demonstrations from this semester's various painting classes. Long gone were the days I used Thom Yorke and other celebrities as reference, I guess student's find it more relatable and real when they see the process of their own faces materialise. Naturally, my Thom Yorke reference was also falling apart.

Well a pleasant throwback, a Hong Kong friend gave me the heads up for a magazine she found. It briefly covered the recent #singaporebiennale and some local hangouts.

And here it is The Saviour out having a breather and hopefully doing some good for environmental awareness. #onsharksandhumanity #davidchan #dc #sgart #sgartist #singaporeart #singaporepainters #artseasonsgallery #thesaviour #parkviewmusuem

I have just a small work there.... compared to the other art works, 3.5m suddenly seems small. #onsharksandhumanity #davidchan #dc #sgart #sgartist #singaporeart #singaporepainters #artseasonsgallery #thesaviour #parkviewmusuem

Incidentally, I am involved in this project by Parkview Museum Singapore. It's a travelling show that started in Monaco through Hong Kong and china. To bring awareness to wildlife conservation and a stop to shark killing. #onsharksandhumanity #davidchan #dc #sgart #sgartist #singaporeart #singaporepainters #artseasonsgallery #thesaviour #sharksaregood #nosharksfin

Was watching The Great Gatsby again, and had the feeling to paint a study of Tobey Maguire. And things started to make sense. Time to dig in and start painting once again...

And finally the highlight of the day was definitely the moment being up close to a pair of lioness. And till next year, that's a wrap. #adm #outdoor #outdoorsketching #singaporeanartist #sgpainters #illustration #davidchan #dc #zootrip #zootopia #animaldrawings #lioness #sleepylions #watercolour #gesturaldrawing

Here's more gestural animals! The rhino was practically bright yellow having played in a mud pool all day. #adm #outdoor #outdoorsketching #singaporeanartist #sgpainters #illustration #davidchan #dc #zootrip #zootopia #animaldrawings #watercolour #gesturaldrawing #dirtyrhino #painteddog
