Hobby Alive

My first painting after years!

Didn't take me more than an hour to come up with this! Not bad right! Since it's Aquarelle pencils, not my usual choice of elements.. still, I must say I am quite satisfied with myself ;) I didn't really know how to begin. I thought of nature so I outlined the main object on the paper, which is the tree and then lightly painted the sky. I added the two figures much later.

Hahahahaha I feel like an amateur!

The brush I used is made out of nanny-goat hair

Hahahahahaa I think it should be me and Turkish. But their body language looks somewhat sad, or maybe relieved to be in others' arms.. I'm not sure. At first I just drew the black figure, standing alone against the tree which was a lot worse! I was working on this piece, I was tuned to a Spanish Salsa radio station, I should have painted something more energetic.

Next time, next time. I'm sure I can do better than this. I was only eager to get my hands dirty. After I returned home, I chucked my bag aside immediately :P But soon, I'm going to have to take my bag out again because Turkish and I are going to check out the Flea Market at M.Belorusskaya! Who knows what we might stumble upon. Flea markets always have interesting stuff! ;)

Hahahahahaa thanks Kris. You wouldn't want to call me a drawer though.. drawer is where one keeps socks or underwears!

Yes, yes. I returned to Moscow to do my specialisation :)
