Shafurdin Habib loves the Malaysian scenery – whether it is the countryside or historical buildings. He is one of the specialists that holds a high respect for the Malaysian wide open, and this is regularly the subject of his artistic creations. Splendidly executed with only the use of watercolour, this narration of Penang is gorgeous and nostalgic, portraying fishermen boats docked and a beautiful scenery in the distance, enveloped by trees. His exemplary hand, the clever play of light and shadow, as well as the balance between subject and space, makes this piece really is truly unique and stunning.
