Painting Down Under

Hello 2018!

Perth is a short 5 hour flight from Singapore. Ever so often, I go there to visit my family. Here's a confession - it's been 2 years since my last visit.  So I bought a one way ticket there.

Being down under often reminds me that I'm on a really huge planet, because at a time when many of my friends are experiencing snow and rain, it's baking in dryness and sunshine in Australia! I used to think that all I'll ever be painting are summer scenes because whenever I'm in Perth is during their summer.

I had a lot of time to catch up with family, but priority was also given to documenting my trip. I pushed the boundaries of filming documentaries while outdoors as a documentary maker with the use of drones for those gorgeous aerial footages. Not only did I make my usual on location painting videos, but also a tutorial on painting tools, and even produced a food trail!  I also went painting with award-winning painter, Leon Holmes, and made a documentary with him painting in the scrubs.

For those who are video fans, this post is packed with videos! And it might be my new direction for 2018 - You Tube Videos. (Don't forget to subscribe - Youtube: Alvin Mark Studio) Painting a steam engine and riding on one, soaring over the distinctive landscapes of Western Australia, and hang out where the locals go for food... you're definitely going to find these clips informative, more so if you are an artist. :)

Here are my top 3 favourite videos from the trip:
