all hail painter char! woohoo!
no, seriously, i’m someone with no artistic talent. my handwriting is shit, i don’t know how to mix colours, blah. i am good at fixing stuff though!
ok anyway! Went to get out paint on at mandarin gallery. at arteastiq. Costs $48 for 3 hours. gets you a 50×50 canvas, unlimited paint, a set of paintbrushes you can keep, apron (you can take this home too).
Fretted for a bit cos I didn’t know what I wanted to paint. I know I wanted something to do with water… something like blancpain’s ad:
But yknow, I can’t paint for nuts… OR MAYBE I CAN? Anyway, decided not to take the risk… and then I wanted to paint this:
SO PRETTYYY. but then the girl said it’ll probably be difficult to paint. which is true cos i’ve never painted before lehhh. hahaha! flipped through the booklets and found this instead!
It’s by leonid afremov, and this was one of the easiest paintings he did! his paintings are damn awesome lah, dots of bright colours and shit. anyway, i didn’t want to butcher his work… so i picked something i had a higher chance of completing.
proud of my boat. cos yknow… must celebrate every achievement just before i ruin things..
Gradient making.. kinda fail. and at first they didn’t have white paint (yah totally blaming the lack of white paint instead of my skills ahhaa)
by this time the girl found white paint and hooray, the master artist is back in action!!
hello boaty! Didn’t expect myself to colour the boat in this manner. actually i was panicking and then i used my tissues to wipe the paint off but what dyou know, a nice gradient formed. maybe that’s how it came about in the first place. artist spills paint, panics, then cleans it up hastily, but woohoo! boo-ti-foollll…. and to the top left you see what looks like diarrhoea? YEA I RUINED IT. i tried to add the colouful drops of paint and then it was butt ugly so i had to cover it up. T_T
Oh well. paint finish liao. nothing can be done. I didn’t wanna go paint a fourth layer hahahaha.
And meanwhile… the fellow painters who all have hidden artistic talents….
SUSHI TRUMP! Just gotta add two shoyu drops for the eyes! cannot unsee. i kept making fun of j’s painting and i felt slightly bad but at the same time.. i’m childish like that. GOOD ON YOU J FOR NOT PUNCHING ME!
such perfect circles. srsly how did she do it.
As they say in chinese… 远看朱丽叶，近看猪八戒
Wise words indeed… Anyway, went home to hang my painting! Got the bro to help staple some rope onto it hahha.
Welcome home! ((= Painting looks lonely there, may transfer this to above my TV, and the painting of my family to this wall (But first, to secure that piece with.. something sturdy, otherwise it’ll fall on my neck when I’m asleep wtf.
