Welcome to Fall!

I have not posted in ages! But my reason is so cute. My nephew was born in July so I have been helping to take care of him. Babies are so cute omg. I also have not painted a lot lately. Will have to do so soon. Until then, here is Hiroshima city from my window, back when I was there for a meeting last year :):):)

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!

Back to landscape painting–the comfort zone!

I really really want to paint portrait. But I suck at painting portrait. I can only draw and sketch people but I don’t know how to paint people with watercolor. They said you can learn and master something by practicing very hard but I guess I probably need to enroll for a course or two! I have not given up yet 🙂 Just went back to my comfort zone and rolled around there a bit. Here is the result.  

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.
