This particular work joins Ong Kim Seng’s coveted and beautiful Nepal Series, materialised upon his visit to the country. This landscape work is immediately eye-catching and meticulously executed in typical Ong Kim Seng style. Earthy, beige colours sweep across the canvas to further embellish the majestic mountainscape that reveal its summit above the clouds while smaller mountains encapsulate the village by the lake below. Not only does it evoke a sense of tranquility, it’s also otherworldly and endearing.
