Posted in Watercolors with tags , , , , , on November 16, 2011 by Francis Jong

As the title says, rain, rain and more rains. Well it’s the monsoon season now at Kuala Lumpur. Hope it won’t be as bad as Thailand, i hope things are better now and may their livelihood are back to normal. The weatherman predicts heavy then usual rains will hit Malaysia too,it’s forecast to be continuously heavy for the next few months. The government and the relevent agencies are preparing for it, hope it’s just prediction. It’s gloomy but not prolong, sunshine is just behind those dark cloud, brighter days ahead soon.

Raining scene always amaze me, the blurring effect that makes the scenery unreal. It’s really a challenge to put all this on paper, and so i try. Hope you will like this raining scene at Kuala Lumpur. The backdrop is the twin tower and the monorail tracks. What can be worse than got stuck in a traffic jam, dark cloud and the imminent heavy down pour. You be lucky if you are in a car, protected from the elements.

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and may the year 2010 bring good fortune and happiness to everyone around the globe. Every year there will be display of grand fireworks at the Petronas Twin Tower at Kuala Lumpur. Going early is a must if you wanted to get a good site to watch the countdown finally. Also not to forget the aftermath, hours of traffic jam, so better plan your route of escape earlier.
Hope you enjoy this fireworks display.

This is the city I live in, Kuala Lumpur. Well actually I don’t live in the city but nearby satellite town. Bit of driving distance from the city. Just like most typical cities in the world, bustling with activity in commerce and alive 24 by 7. I just done a sketch on one of it’s famous landmark, The Sultan Abdul Samad Building. It is located just opposite of the Merdeka square, the field is famous for all the concert and the parade celebration of the independence day. Hope you like this sketch, a tribute to KL Heritage. More to come.

Kota Damansara Community Forest

Posted in Watercolors with tags , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2009 by Francis Jong

Last weekend’s done some painting about forest scenery. I refer to a photograph taken by my friend whom also a professional photographer, Michael Low. This one is captured during one of his trip of photo hunting. The scenery is taken while he was on a small boat on a manmade lake at Kota Damansara Community Forest. What really amaze me is at this age there is still some real forest just outskirt of Kuala Lumpur. I was captivated by the scene of canoes basking under the late afternoon sun. I bet it’s a wonderful experience for him.
