I am packing for India!!!! (painting gear for my upcoming adventure)

Hey, time really flies!! It’s almost there! 😃

Next week, I will fly to India and will able to enjoy 17 awesome days in a different colorful culture… I am so looking forward to discovering it… and to painting it, of course! 🎨
Plus, I will have the amazing chance to lead a watercolor workshop there and I am so excited about it!! 😝

 

Leaving for India!! 🕌

Actually, I only made really few trips during these 15 past years and I even realized I have never been out of Europe yet!!
So, I am sure it’s going to be a life-changing adventure for me! Because of India and because of to the watercolor workshop too. 😊 Continue reading

The benefit of the missing color

I am telling you just a little story, for a start… 😉

Sketching day! You are going to draw on location all day, your inspiration is awesome, the sun is shining, your fellow urban sketchers have great watercolor approaches to share with you… It’s going to be a perfect day!

But, suddenly, horror! You realize that the pan of one of your favorite color is almost empty! Damn!
Are you going to let that bad news ruin your sketching session?!

Creative gear talking and sharing

It’s always so interesting to learn about which tools other sketchers and artists like to use, and how!

Obviously, it’s not thanks to your great material that you will become a great artist… There are so many people (including me) that often produce nothing special with their sometimes expensive wonderful tools! 😱 😜
So, the secret really is to consider how to use this kind of paper, or paint, or brush etc. It’s to find which tools can serve your purpose and how you can use it to enhance your work. ☺️

Big undertaking, isn’t it?! 😉

But that’s fine. If it’s a pleasure to create, to try some tools, to think about materials, you can spend time doing it and have fun, right?! 🙂
That’s important, though, not to forget to really create with the tools you discovered and bought! 😌

  

As an Urban Sketcher, but also a “countryside sketcher”, a “seascape sketcher” and even a “home sketcher”, 😁 I have to use light and handy tools to be able to sketch on the go, often standing.
So, it’s always useful that each of use share his own tips and tricks to help the others to become better sketching adventurers too! 😀 Continue reading
