Quick one

January 17, 2013

 In an attempt to feel slightly more productive than practically a month and a half of holiday-ing has left me, I made this quick watercolour piece last night.

 It’s not quite what I was picturing during exam time (that I would do a painting a day! Or every other day! Or something.). Exam time makes everything seem more interesting than it does, otherwise.

But it’s a start. And I still do have more time on my hands than I have use for, so I’ll try to be more consistent in updating this blog.

Until next time, here’s wishing you and excellent 2013 ( bit late, I know). Keep the comments coming!

Watercolor experiment

June 16, 2012

Hello again!

I find that I’m naturally inclined to be pretty heavy-handed with my paintings. But I’ve always loved good watercolour work, which calls for much less mucking around than I’m used to. I also recently watched a video by an artist who recommended counting brush strokes to reduce superfluous painting. And so, I’ve been trying out  watercolour painting, albeit not keeping count of my strokes because I’m not sure there are numbers large enough (see: mucking around).

Anyhow, here’s a quick piece I made about half a month ago, which I present to you in typical BWC fashion ( i.e, much belatedly).

Great Perhaps

May 23, 2012

“Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”

“I was born into Bolívar’s labyrinth, and so I must believe in the hope of Rabelais’ Great Perhaps.”

Both quotes from John Green’s Looking For Alaska, which was one of my favourite reads of 2011 (and also of all time).

Painting#2

As fun as a lopsided house seems, I guess it’s a good thing I’m not studying to be a civil engineer.
