London’s brick wall of a building

ตึกในย่านพอททอเบลโล่ ในกรุงลอนดอนค่ะ งามงดไปทั่งถิ่น เก็บภาพมาจน โอ้โห นึกว่าเป็นสถาปนิก 55 แล้วจะเติมอีกเรื่อยๆเน้อ สวยจริงจัง

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.  

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 :):):)

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!

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.
