Battersea Park Pagoda

Painting in Battersea Park. There is this beautiful pagoda, which makes me feel 'homesick'.

This is for Illustration Friday theme Childhood.  I wanted to try something different. I didn't do any planning, just started drawing, and now I have loads of ideas of how I should have done this differently. Well, next time...

Pinky Flower

I decided to submit a painting to this year's Summer Exhibition of Royal Academy of Arts.

There is going to be several rounds of judging, so we will see... The likelihood of being selected doesn't seem too high but my main motivation was to push myself to create a new series of work. And I loved the process of it, I have so many new ideas now!

Canary Wharf

Oh, I just realized that January is almost gone without me posting anything... So here are some sketches I made in Canary Wharf two weeks ago (it was very cold day to draw outside so proud of myself).

I love industrial scenes and will definitely draw there again (which should be easy since I happen to work there as well).

Bathroom Sink

I was planning to do something for the IF theme 'wet' when I remembered the strange dream I saw the night before. In the dream I had yellow light coming from a plughole of a bathroom sink and I realized I could talk to my grandmother (who passed away 20 years ago) via the hole. So I drew that instead...

Regent's Canal

Walked along Regent's Canal last weekend, from Angel to Bethnal Green, and stopped three times to paint with watercolours. I hope nice weather continues, I would still like to do this a couple of times before winter arrives.
