In February, I moved back to my hometown and started sketching with ink, because I was in between jobs, and then COVID-19 hit. I thought it would be good for me to do a 100 days challenge to keep a daily structure.

Although I really like ink, I've always wanted to learn more about colors and paint. So I decided to give it a go with gouache, a medium I had never used before.

Now, I'm halfway down the 100 days challenge! I'm in love with gouache. It is such a versatile and forgiving medium. The vibrant colors make me very happy.

For the first 50 days, I used many reference photos (credit is on my Instagram) and for the next 50 days, I'm going to use my own photos or my imagination.

It is a tough challenge, but also a great learning experience. I really hope you enjoy my paintings and that those colors make your day a little brighter!

I love the views of wire and industry- it makes me think of some of the setting shots in anime I like :)

This one evokes a feeling within me which says there has to be a story with it. Perhaps, I am feeling nostalgic. How about I write a piece for each of your painting. Aaah, what the hell, could I do it?

You can take everyday items you see and you make it a price of art (literally)

Do you use rulers or are that talented that you simply do it with symmetry? Ugh, this is why I could never draw, it's requires so much patience and if it's not symmetric then what's the point?
