Ng Woon Lam Original Watercolor Painting


Ng Woon Lam Watercolor Painting

I designed the exciting light and shadows to react with the
peaceful atmosphere. I like the freshness of watercolor.
John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer are my heroes in watercolor painting.
The medium was controlled and executed to its extreme freshness
with courage and 100% confidence and 100% art skills + visual knowledge.
How did I learn watercolor painting. Simple!! I slept with Sargent. Hahaha!!!
I had 2 Sargent's painting books. For 2 years, I read them before I went to bed.
Sometimes, I slept with them.

Your watercolor heroes definitely echo with my personal ones as well. I was wondering what Sargent books are you referring to?

ISBN : 0896600149 by Ratcliff and 0789203847 by Adelson Janis Kilmurray Ormond Outstinoff

Cheers

Thanks a lot. I don't think I've checked those out. Have you ever been to the Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC? He had done many portraits for the Vanderbilt family there.

Hi, I have not been there before. Love Sargent's portrait paintings too.
