    Smile Penang through the paintbrush .

    Gonna try something a bit different here , I,m gonna try and do a recollection of our recent trip to Penang through my paintbrushes , mabe a few pastels thrown in for good measure , but NO photos from me in this thread.

    Now another aspect of this , is the fact that I am gonna be painting a lot of them from memory , some were quickly done on location , others will be done from photos I took .

    Also I have to add 90% will be from Georgetown , we loved this place so much and we spent most of the 4 days there , tbh it would be bloody selfish of me , but I would love to sit and paint here for a month or more , so much lovely architecture .

    Ok don,t expect works of art
    A. I am not an artist .

    B. These are very quick snapshots gotten down through the brushes to hopefully jog the memories of some of you lucky enough to have been there , or mabe after looking some might like to go. I highly reccomend it.


    Ok please be patient as I have to paint these each day , anyway I,ll let the pics take over from my waffle now .

    To get us underway.
































    Be back later

    Bloody hell Nigel they are good mate I had a go at painting 10 years ago but wasn't very good at it much to my disappointment. Please put some more on when you can.

    Here Nigel, I'd like to buy a few of your works (no rich man but not scruffy when it comes to pulling my weight either)

    PM me if you can spare me a few (TD mates rates )

    If not - bollocks, all your work is rubbish

    Hell of a lot better than I could do. You can see he feels something. Art is something that passed me by. I appreciate some. But cant draw for shit. I like this side of Nigel.

    'Kin 'ell, Nige. I've done Penang loads of times, especially Georgetown.
    I can't recall the minaret but, I stayed at a hotel within earshot, noisy barstards!

    Great paintings.

    I've seen all 3 of those places Nige and they are fantastic paintings I think. I have 3 answers for you already, the second one I'm not too sure that its the Chinese temple.

    Anyhow as a testament to your skills, tomorrow I'm gonna get in a few taxis and just show them your artwork. I will be back tomorrow with their interpretations

    Well thankyou all kindly , seems a bit of a novel idea I had has a bit of appeal to folk.

    Its allways nice I think when you look at a standard picture thread and the pictures jog your memory , but your gonna have to think a bit with this one lol .

    Well done nigel, it's nice to see a bit of watercolour. I can't paint for toffee, but you have captured some beauty there.
