My monthly budget has already blown out of proportion but this event I just couldn't miss so I did sign up!
I skipped the launch since the workshop is going to be the next day early morning session. Unfortunately it was the same day my dinosaur just came so I was skeptical if I will be able to enjoy the workshop.
It was my first time at Scotts Square, no matter how small Singapore is I still have a lot of places I haven't been to. As expected I was welcomed with a classy ambiance and off I went to the third floor at K+ where the exhibit and the workshop is located.
Lorraine came a few minutes after I came and she cheerfully greeted us early comers. While everyone was settling down, I checked the exhibit first.
As part of the exhibit, she painted 5 miniatures depicting Singapore spots and was on sale. If I have the extra moolah I would have bought one :)
So on to the workshop, all materials were provided. Our project was to paint an orchid, Singapore's national flower. Since the flower is pinkish/white she advised us to have a background otherwise if we are more adventurouos we can opt for a plain background. I didn't since I know it would entail skill in making shadows and outlines to distinguish the plain background.
Like the usual I did mine in free-style. And I finished way faster than the others, just shows how impatient I am LOL I still liked the outcome taking into consideration that this is my first time to do realistic painting and a miniature at that.
It was a fun, unique and insightful workshop! And feels great to not only meet the artist but interact with her.
And thanks to doctor-prescribed meds, the dinosaur was tame during the whole session LOL
