This painting depicts a serene river scene painted based on a reference photo taken near Kampung Bako, Kuching Sarawak. It is one of Marvin’s favourite places to visit in Kuching and only accessible by speedboat at the jetty. Along the boat ride, visitors would be able to see traditional Malay fishing villages as depicted in this painting.
