The road begins here
I am off on a road journey tomorrow for a working tour with friend and fellow artist, Suhaimi aka Mie Pak Lah. We both hope to do lots of traveling and live painting in the outdoors, documenting the scenery, the atmosphere and the spirit of the east coast of Malaysia.
The plan is to leave Kuala Lumpur and cut across central Malaysia and head for the coast, covering Kuantan, Beserah, Cherating, Kijal, Kemaman, Dungun, Kuala Terengganu, Pulau Duyung, Kuala Besut and Pulau Perhentian...but not necessarily in that order.
I'm very excited about this road trip we are taking. We're bundling up our art tools and equipment -- lots of paper, some canvas, watercolours, acrylics, charcoals, brushes, etc. -- and stuffing everything into the back of my Benz station wagon.
It will be classic! Just two artists, the open road, the sea, our canvas and paints. It's like Monet and gang in the Impressionist period!
Wish us luck!
