Evoking the familiar spirit of Khalil Ibrahim’s beloved East Coast once more, this is a variation of the work of his East Coast Series, where the artist was inspired by his rustic upbringing in Kelantan. Featuring a group of fishermen walking by the beach together and sharing a lively moment between friends, Khalil bring out the details of the beach, the sand, the background, the sky, and the detailing of the vibrant and contrasting colours of their apparels with his prowess in watercolour. Captured in this moment is a day of friends, bright sunny skies, warm breeze and hot weather.o
