I’ve been to Burano, Italy last year. Such gorgeous little Island! And very colorful. Medium: watercolor & a little PS Current mood: Oh how I miss using a traditional tool to paint something ❤
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 :):):)

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?
This pink flower is called Otome Tsubaki. Tsubaki is the Japanese name of this kind of flower. Otome means a lady. No need to translate 😀
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*
Still at Harajuku. Still under the same Gingko tree in front of JR Harajuku station. But instead of looking up, I look down. The sight is as beautiful. And as yellow.
I went to Japan last November and the Gingko leaves were just starting to change color from green to yellow. It was so pretty, especially around JR Harajuku station where there are lines of Gingko trees near by. I LOVE autumn!
The best way to practice drawing people is by drawing your favorite actors/actresses! It works for me at least 🙂 I am not hoping to be good at this so soon but I hope to be inspired for a long time and that I don’t get bored. Patience is the key!
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!
