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*

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!

Hana Mitsuki

I love painting flowers. I’d like to think I am doing fine with all the details/lines on petals and leaves and etc. But once in while, I do not care about details at all and just draw and paint what I see at first or second glance. Like I did with Hana Mitsuki flowers here. It is refreshing and the outcome is not so bad.
