London’s brick wall of a building

My university

Thammasat university, Bangkok. I have never been close to my uni ever since I graduated cause it’s so far from my house. I was assigned to paint the main building of the uni last week and suddenly miss it very much. I want to say that I hope to go there but I can’t because I am pretty certain that I am not able to travel that far these days just to stare at the building and think about the old day. Painting this picture soothed me some. It sure is a place with precious memories.  

Hello you!

When I first started painting 3 years ago, inspiration did not come to me easily. I could only paint what I saw, so landscape painting was my comfort zone. But as I continued painting, random scenes started to pop up in my head even when I was not painting at that very moment. Like today, when I was browsing my facebook, I saw a friend’s profile picture of a doll she sew by herself. Minutes later, that doll began to stroll through field of flowers in my head. I grabbed a pencil and did some sketching and voila she’s here! I guess I have to name her now, am I?

Tsubaki: Delicate, but Vibrant and Strong

As my quest to draw & paint people continues, I find out along the way that just painting what you see is good enough for now 🙂 The color and shadow that appear on this sample picture of Genevieve Padalecki are perfect. I just copied what I saw down on paper, drawing and coloring what was there. Then added the flowers that I thought suited her on the side. The result is much better than my wildest expectation! *fist pumps*

My quest to draw people continues…

Remember when I first sketch people 2 months ago? I have been practicing, finding inspiration from actors I like (their faces for one lol). They are still look like manga characters but I think now I know how to color people’s face better. Here is Jared Padalecki portraying Sam Winchester from the series Supernatural. Will keep practicing. I still have no clue how to paint people’s clothes tbh. Guh

Happy New year 2015!

Well, I have been away forever! Works have been flowing in so no complains 🙂 It has become a tradition that I send postcards to my friends from watercolor class once in a while. So on the occasion of the new year, I painted a bunch of postcards with cats to them. I love cats. Not as much as dogs but I love them too. This is not the year of the cat (but the year of the goat for us Asian) but well… who can resist cute cats!

Still life #5–where to next?

It is not really a still life painting but this just fits my previous still life theme so yey. My watercolor classmates and I kind of have a tradition to paint postcards to our classmates like once every 2 or 3 months. One of my classmates is a very smart university professor and she travels around the globe and be a visiting professor here and there. Her name in Thai is Nok which means bird in English. So the latest postcard I painted for her was this one. Very simple but not at all easy. I don’t really like the background color. Though I like chubby little colorful birds and their little red flags (*pats self for coming up with this idea heh*). But my friend loves it! I guess this matters the most.  

Drink up and make a wish

From today until the end of the year (only 3 months away—how time flies!), I will be drawing and painting a lot of pictures about Japan. My plan is to create a kind of picture book, with watercolor paintings on Japan. I have a direction in my head but I do not think my mood and my right hand that are mostly responsible for the quality of my drawings will listen to it much.  *sighs* This is one of the pictures I will use in the picture book. Kiyomisudera in spring. The waterfall will grant you wishes so make a wish (or two) before drinking. And look who have the new (c) trademark! In red color even!
