Attempted to paint #galaxy for 86258953279 number of times, threw away n number of them... And finally one that I am satisfied with (in comparison with those that were thrown away)! ✌🏻😌 #practice more and it will get better! 😊 Thanks to @paintinkco for the advice and demonstration too! 😘

When not inspired to #paint, just do #drills ✍🏻 Practised combining thick and thin strokes with #wavylines and 'S' #shapelines .

Weirdly, doing drills give me some kind of calming effect recently. Keeping my mind off other things, and just focusing on the strokes and ink flowing on the white paper. 😌 good exercise before bedtime

Back to the drills after stopping for about 2 weeks. 💪🏻 Surprisingly the potato is still looking (& smelling) okay! .

6 inch subway sandwich (requested by my sister who had that for dinner a couple of days ago) - the ingredients are too neatly arranged 😂 .

Had a Saturdate with Baby A and Baby E 👶🏻👶🏻 Decided to paint a rocking unicorn 🦄 instead of a usual horse; because each child is special like that. (Ok, horses are unique in their own ways too) .

Any kind soul willing to pay for my flight and fly me back to Nice, so that I can beach bum there again when it's summer? 👙🕶️ I am very bad with the different seasons in all the different countries; is it autumn there now? 🍂 If so, I am ok to wait till next summer. 🙊😂 #missingmytripalready #france #nice #beach

Not feeling inspired to paint anything recently. So, it's just the paint, water, brush and me! Mixing different amount of water to the new #danielsmith and #holbein watercolours I have gotten and looking at how new colours are created. The colours are all so vibrant, and I am totally in awe with how the colours turned out to be so pretty. 😻P.S. this is #winsorandnewton watercolour. Hahahaha! Abit outdated post of this painting. 🙈 Check out the instastory for the DS colours. 😹

Wasn't feeling inspired to paint anything the other day, so I "painted" this pair of spectacles after watching Criminal Minds. So in love with the nerdy profiler. 😻

The OVALS are my nightmare! 😱 This is the basic stroke that I fear the most, and always felt really disheartened looking at how horrible they were. 😔 But, that's when positive self talk comes in right? Part and parcel of growth, and learning to be nice to myself. 😊

Was addicted to painting these leaves in different gradient of rainbow colours recently 🌈 I think I am subconsciously inspired by @kirstensevig artwork which I saw earlier this year! 😁 After I am done, I thought it looked like one of the artwork she did earlier in Feb 🙈 Check out her creations! They are awesome. 😻 .

🤔 What should I letter on it?

Another day of calligraphy practice over the weekend (this was done on Sunday) 🖋️This time I realized that I can't concentrate when someone is actually talking to me while I practise! 😱 but I am alright with either music or just silence. 🙈 Probably because I felt the need to listen actively to the other person, and I am overloading my executive functioning cognitive load!! 😰it's really interesting to learn more about myself through just practising my basic strokes

Another misty forest attempt inspired by @monvoirco
So in love 😻 with the green 🌲 and the watching the colours bleed freely, doing its magic 💫

🌵Cacti are known to survive with little water in the dry and hot environment and providing sustenance and shelter to many animals and insects in the desert. They are all about "resilience", just like the families I interacted with yesterday during the medical screening camp I volunteered at. Hearing stories from those women I spoke to as I screened their mental well-being, and with just a couple of simple questions, you know how much resilience they have in them. It's their resilience that kept they going on for years in those "harsh environments" and for them to provide for their next generation.

Encouraged by @paintinkco to try out "misty forest" inspired by @monvoirco ; this was my first attempt, and half of it turned out to be the evil twin! Such a mess. So, here's the nicer twin. .
It's really nice to paint this. So therapeutic just looking at the paint bleeds and do its magic. 😻
