#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.”
