Last Saturday, I had the chance to be at my third place with my husband, a watercolor palette, a few of my favorite synthetic brushes, a pencil, an eraser and my monologue A6 sketchbook. I spent our comfortable silence bonding day studying, sketching and coloring a fried egg.
I’d like to think that there is some progress with studying and teaching myself how to draw, at the same time studying and learning how to color using watercolors (a friend said that a lot of patience is needed with using watercolours because layering colors is the key). Ah patience, something I am still working on in all aspects of my life but with this fried egg, I tried working clockwise thinking that when I come back to where I started that part will be dried and ready for the next layer. Since this piece is small, 4.13 in x 5.83 in only, my plan worked. I was able to see its progression and how happy I felt after. I was a Saturday spent well! 🙂
