Portrait of Chris Pine

Artist: Ong Kok Leong, Singapore
Artist Statement: I was very impressed with Chris Pine’s portrayal of Steve Trevor in the blockbuster movie Wonder Woman. He certainly gave a fresh interpretation compared to the classic Lynda Carter’s version and the animated 2009 animated version. I’ve recently purchased a small Beta soft cover sketchbook and decided to use it mainly for portrait work. Painting a portrait on a small surface is quite challenging but I really enjoy it. I’m primarily a portrait watercolorist and I love how the Beta paper takes watercolor paints and the result that it gives.

MEDIA: Watercolors
SURFACE: Beta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Cold Press Surface

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Born and based in Singapore, Kok Leong began drawing at a tender age of four. Although he had taken art lessons in his early school years, Kok Leong is essentially self-taught. After a long hiatus from art, he began posting his work on Facebook in 2012 and has been drawing and painting ever since. Kok Leong has done commissions for local independent retailers, illustrated concert promotional material, as well as created paintings for friends and family.
