Trying my hand at watercolors :)

During the month of May, it was very pleasant since I gotten re-acquainted with watercolor painting. I have a new Prang basic color set :) It's wonderful because it is so pigmented and very workable.

I've done just a couple of coloring exercises. Nothing too impressive, I hope I can learn and become better at watercolors faster :(

Because I want to fuel this passion, I bought a 'painting' desk (just an ordinary corkboard study desk, nothing too fancy) so that I can have an area in my room where it's brightly lit and I can watercolor in peace... Meaning, not get distracted by the glaring monitor and the urge to browse about my favorite websites.

I like this desk because the horizontal board folds up and closes like a little cabinet. I store some artbooks there too, and if you look closely, there's a bunch of manga on the shelves along my videogame and anime toy collectibles. I need more, don't you think? Haha!

I feel that watercolors is very relaxing. All those wonderful misty colors. Sketching and coloring is a nice way to spend a lovely Saturday afternoon.

Wishing you peace and quiet!
Thanks for reading~ :)


  1. hehehe pareha ta naga tuon :)

  2. Crossing the lines between art forms keeps creativity strong. Looks like you're coming along nicely!

  3. I love your watercolor outputs Aich! :D btw I have a similar desk, I like the design, but the wood smelled really bad, I dunno if it was because of the paint or the termite repellent it was soaked in~

  4. Thank you Rik!! :)
    Oh that's terrible. Mine has a varnishy, plasticky smell but it isn't to overwhelming. I was thinking that maybe if I get really good at watercolors, I would buy a specially made table?

    haha but that would be too far off in the future ;)
