Clementi mall

Drew this while having breakfast at the newly revamped Toastbox at Clementi Mall. I looked out the large window while munching on a ham and cheese toast which I occasionally dipped into a bowl of soft-boiled eggs. I'd also sip my cup of coffee+evaporated milk+no sugar. Outside, people were busy walking past. A train would stop at the station every few minutes. Behind me, two men were chatting about their kids and work. I was glad no one was looking over my shoulders while I drew. FW acrylic ink marker + watercolours.

Playing with posca markers and acrylic ink

Since I only had 4 markers, I was forced to use a limited colour palette. The brown and skin tone orange were warm colours so I balanced it with a blue. White marker for highlights and FW acrylic ink in a home-made marker for the black. Later on, I got the FW marker to put the FW acrylic ink in and that flowed a lot better.
