It is established that Long Thien Shih is an incredible artist with an affinity for nature. While most of the artist’s works are distinct in their own right, this particular one, entitled ‘Khalil’s by T.S Long on plein air’ is special. Portrayed in this piece is the late maestro Khalil Ibrahim as well as the artist himself, in an alley of some sort. At the foreground, the artist illustrated himself sketching an en plein air scene before him which included artist Khalil Ibrahim, seated on the ground, also sketching on his pad, en plein air. Through this work, viewers are granted a behind-the-scenes of an artist’s process during en plein air.
