I could kick myself for not remembering the name of this snack! It’s yummy and beautiful. Guh? What does it call??
ตึกในย่านพอททอเบลโล่ ในกรุงลอนดอนค่ะ งามงดไปทั่งถิ่น เก็บภาพมาจน โอ้โห นึกว่าเป็นสถาปนิก 55 แล้วจะเติมอีกเรื่อยๆเน้อ สวยจริงจัง
So there was this cat positioning itself just above the manhole near Osaka Castle in Osaka. People were taking her(?) picture. I wanted to do something different so I painted her (haha)
Nothing much, just having fun with this panda and the boy who wants to be a panda 🙂
Well, let’s say I’m pleased with the result 🙂
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.
The three monkeys in Yasaka Koushindou temple in Kyoto tell us to look (judge), hear and speak carefully! If only human can learn from these monkeys, the world would be a better place.
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 :):):)
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!
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.
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!
I need more reference on how to paint Sakura branch with watercolor. Until I can master the skill, please squint your eyes *winks*
I would like to think I get better at this… yes? no? But I had fun–that is for sure. Heh
So they all say third time’s a charm! I presented to you the chubby little labrador and his oh-so-huge fish 🙂 I think the fish swims upside down? No?
Oh my, my, who would have thought that painting things are so much harder than painting landscape! My second try at still life painting. The original photo is not mine, found in google. Still a very loooong way to gooooo….
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.
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.
