Flawless technique makes watercolour wonder-collection

Sukit Sukrakan’s annual “Happiness with Water Colour” will be on exhibition at Art Exhibition Room by Kanicapat until May 30. A consummate perfectionist, Mr Sukit not only spends three hours every day solely practicing his watercolour skills, but travels all over Thailand and to Europe, where he can relay the beauty of his observations in paint.

“Watercolour needs daily practice, quick decisions, commitment. The fewer strokes the better,” he says. Mr Sukit, despite his decades of experience as an art teacher, still considers himself a student of his craft, faced with a different technicality to wrangle every day in his effort to depict the beauty that he sees. He aims to create a body of work that is expressive and creative, holding himself to no particular standards and making decisions that are contextually appropriate to his work.

His efforts pay off, the exhibition is reverent in detail, with a sense of vitality that is consistent throughout the entire collection. Considered by many as one of the best watercolour artists in Thailand, Mr Sukit’s latest exhibit is worth dropping by to experience the beautifully emotive paintings that are on display.

New Paths Retreat

Pab Khien Thai Art Gallery is open from 10am to 7pm at 1 Thepkrasattri Rd, near Thalang Rd and Phuket Rd, Phuket Old Town. You can also get in touch on facebook.com/sukit.sukrakan.
