A.B. Ibrahim excelled in creating and romanticising local landscapes only with the watercolour medium. It is a common, everyday and modest scene carrying a quiet and tranquil mood that accompanies the atmosphere of villages. The artist creates a very nostalgic and sentimental mood, reminding one of days gone by or the feeling of missing home after having been away for a long time. His prowess in re-enacting mood and feeling as well as beautiful rustic landscapes on paper made him one of the most well-known artists in Kedah until this day.
