I spent a few days down the coast on the weekend, at a place called Vung Tau, which is the closest beach to Saigon, as I mentioned last week, I’m focusing on water colours, 2 paintings a day is the minimum, so here’s a few from the past week:
Last week (general)
I always come to this cafe when I’m down, (the one I’m sitting in which you can’t actually see), the building on the otherside of the lake is a disused restaurant, normally I draw here so was good to challenge myself with paint this time.
Apart from a little advice from friends or YouTube videos, I’m teaching myself watercolours, learning by doing, and the essential part: critiquing of my work, this helps me learn from each painting I do and remember for my next one, so bit by bit overcoming faults in my work, but I am always open to advice, so for those with experience of painting please pass on any tips you may have.
I am also working on a wall mural for a cafe, which I should be painting next week, so that’s pretty exciting, this is a contemporary design, a combination of electronics and nature, that sort of thing, so looking forward to sharing the progress of this project.
Thanks and until next week
