Back there in India I remember I used to draw on egg shells, (but now those eggs have disappeared!!). Once I came back to Singapore, the gap increased as I couldn’t find time to experiment in various mediums other than paper.
Then once again when I was in Year 1, I started doing those egg shell drawings again. Although it was a few, it definitely was a good kick-start.
But to start off with, I practiced by writing in names on the rice seeds….It was such an interesting experience and every time I finished each drawing I had a self-satisfaction that is really difficult to express through words. On top of it, when customers bought and told me how amazing it is, that was indeed a wonderful boost… I seriously did not expect much of a crowd, but due to its
uniqueness, at the end of the two days, it was the other way round! There was a huge demand for rice drawing in NTU and I ended up facing a busy day J
Being a person who loves various forms of art and its intricacies…rice drawing was one that allowed me to practice patience, steadiness and in a way to be focused too. And one important lesson is no matter how big or small art depiction can be…the lesson learnt is one that will follow through your lifetime…just like it did in mine.
