The cyclists, and heritage buildings, of Sydney in watercolour

Wednesday, 17 June, 2015

Artwork by Dtai Hansathit

To me, watercolour paintings are a memento of a simpler, bygone, time. And maybe that’s the way it should be, the technique takes its origins from the Paleolithic age after all. That’s not to say watercolour artworks don’t cut it in today’s world. Far from it.

Dtai Hansathit is a Sydney based watercolour artist, who takes inspiration from cycling, and the city’s older buildings and houses, such as the establishment seen above, a place I’ve been to one or twice before. Many more works can be seen on Instagram.
