Preparing for my upcoming Hong Kong sketching trip from 31 May to 8 June 2015. Can't wait.

I'll be trying out the new Blockx pan watercolours I received for testing. This is so exciting. I've fitted 18 colours into the palette box, of which are 5 sets of primary colours + Burnt Sienna, Paynes Grey and Blockx Green.

I just bought a new set of watercolours. This time from MIssion Gold Watercolors. It's a set of nine 7-ml tubes. The colours are vibrant. More testing to come. I'll be bringing them to my Hong Kong trip next week.

Marina Bay Cruise Centre.

I was trying some wet on wet techniques for the sky. It's quite challenging under the hot sun. Several areas dired faster resulting in the lighter areas. 

On hindsight, I shouldn't have combined the horizon line of the building and the railings. Looks confusing now.

George Butler is an artist and illustrator specialising in travel and current affairs. His drawings, done in situ are in pen, ink and watercolour. In August 2012 George walked from Turkey across the border into Syria, where as an unofficial guest of the rebel Free Syrian Army he spent 4 days drawing the civil war damaged, small and empty town of Azaz. 6 months later he made a similar trip back to Syria to record the stories amongst the refugees and the field hospitals. These drawings were reproduced by the Times, the Guardian, Evening Standard, Der Spiegel, ARD television Germany, NPR (USA) and reported on the BBC World News, BBC World Service, CNN twice, Al Arabiya and Monocle Radio. However, his sense of adventure did not start here - since leaving Kingston university, drawing has taken George around the world, depicting the oil fields in Azerbaijan, soldiers in Afghanistan, reconstructive plastic surgery, G20 riots, the New York Fire Department and Asian Elephants.

Spent some time mixing some of the Blockx primary colours today. It's really difficult to choose what would be in my 12 colours. They are all so nice.

So far I'm leaning towards

Blockx Yellow/Primary Yellow
Gold Ochre (which is like Raw Sienna)
Pyrrolo Red/Blockx Red
Q. Magenta
Crimson Lake
Primary Blue
Ultramarine Deep
Cobalt Blue
Cerulean Grey
Blockx Green
Burnt Sienna Light

Blockx Yellow seems a bit cooler. Primary Yellow is slightly warmer and I feel is a colour that can be use standalone. 

Yes, there are four blues. Each with their own characteristics. The two must-have blues are Primary Blue (which is like Phthalo Blue) and Ultramarine. I've recently fallen in love with Cerulean blue because of its granulation. Cobalt Blue is a nice blue also but if I really have to drop one it would be this colour.

More testing to come.

I've been with Vodien for a few years now and have been very satisfied with their service. They are very responsive with their 24/7 email and helpline. Their staff are very knowledgeable, and with all the problems I had, they managed to get my website back up each time! As for their pricing, I feel that they are quite competitive even when compared to international companies, and for the level of service they provide it's definitely value for money. I can easily recommend them to my friends.
