I planned to paint this old man for quite some time already. He served my family with fresh coconut drink when we went to his eating place at Teluk Ketapang, Kuala Terengganu.
A sketch is all I have now but I need to do something about it.
My photos references are not enough to show what I want in the painting. I need some ‘interaction‘.. between the man and viewers. Well, let me go back to my drawing board for a while…need time to think…to make it more interesting.. to show not only a friendly coconut man..but a man who is proud of what he’s doing.
