January and February 2017 Watercolor Workshops

The first two months of the 2017 had been a whirlwind of activities. I completed a workshop each month, again at my favorite place, FullyBooked. I’m very glad that people signed up despite announcing it last year amidst the Christmas holiday, making me more anxious about the upcoming year! I also gave out free watercolor paper sampler pack from tutubingkarayom for the first 5 who availed with materials. It’s called the curiosity pack and also available to purchase online.

Like all my previous workshops, I learned a lot in the preparation and actual session. Realized that I shouldn’t schedule a 2nd workshop too close to the date of the previous workshop (stressful!)! I had a drop-in student during my Watercolor for beginners and I’m glad I brought an extra Prang with me!

First thought – my disheveled hair! Second thought – someone brought their merienda. A participant/watcher (who is also a dear friend) is pregnant so she was happily munching away during the workshop. Lastly, even babies were welcome! Thankfully, my lecture put her to sleep. Hahaha!
Thankfully the same pregnant friend took on the role of being my photographer during the event. 🙂

I made a lineart for each student in the workshop so they don’t have to deal with sketching on their first portrait painting. On the final portrait though I let them choose which of my painting they want to use for practice.

For March, I have exclusive workshops which I’m pretty excited about, then I’ll be gone for a short vacation (sakuras are calling me~). There might be workshop schedules coming up in April/May, if my schedule permits. 😉

I’m writing more in this blog because it’ll be such a waste for a website not to have any new content. And I must remember to take proper photos of my remaining 2016 work so I can upload them in my portfolio. Still so much in my backlog!!!
