#30 days challenge|from the window

Day 7| from the window

Sitting on a window-facing seat at Clover Food Lab, a coffee shop located Main St. People walked by the window. Everyone is so different. Some seemed to be very busy, barely remove their eyes from the cellphone. Some listened to the music, and some people just walked.

I sit here for the whole afternoon and started to sketch this view from the window. Nothing special.

I guess I will paint some color afterwards. But now just leave it black and white.

#PAINT with me vol.2

As I planned to travel, I bought a Van Gogh travel size watercolor and a 4*6 inches paper booklet for convenience. This is the first time I used Van Gogh and I found it easier to leave water marks 😦 , but performs fairly with this price.

#30 days challenge| 4/for seasons

Day 5| twilight/ night/ breeze/ glow

p.s.It’s a cloudy day, so the light made the paints a little bit darker.

p.p.s How do you paint countless “star” ? Well, my secret tool is ‘used electronic tooth brush head’. And it works perfectly!!

p.p.p.s I am heading to Boston today(excited and am writing this post at Toronto Pearson Airport), and it’s my first time be there. I bring my travel size watercolor box with me, so hopefully I can find something to paint!



See how cute those LEGO toys are.

#30 days challenge| Xiamen and Moon

Day 4|Xiamen & Moon

Photo credited to Ira. We met each other at a TEDxBohaiBay event back in Tianjin, China. She said that this is the moment that she falls in love with Xiamen and the moon.

“我那时候正在厦门沙坡尾吃肉串,坐下来一个人在那边吃,一抬头。简直被美到。肉也很好吃就是了哈哈哈 “

“I was having kebab at Shapowei in Xiamen, and I was sitting here and eating. I looked up to the sky, and I was amazed by the buildings and the moon. Well, the kebab is delicious as well lol.”
