My first pastel workshop in Japan

So this is one reasons why I kind of gave up carrying my DSLR and tripod with me.  🙂 One of my plans to accomplish during this trip was to do a pastel workshop for whose who had expressed interests to me since last year.

Due to the pastel drawing needs a suite of tools to do, despite the method was to use your finger(s) and rub them over the paper, it is apt to be rather bulky to carry by yourself unless you drive.

The workshop was made successful.  The participants who had never done this before, expressed their beautiful souls onto a piece of square paper to the full extent.  It is hard to tell you of how thrilling time I had with them as watching (and guiding) the whole process of the unique beautiful artwork was born out.  Japan, which has turned to rainy season, have got Hydrangea in full bloom, and I suggested them to draw Hydrangea.  Their touch and expression demonstrated during the work gave me inspiration and motivation.  🙂

I personally interpret this drawing process is quite similar to that you are meditating, which it may make you feel quite refreshing.  I am so glad that I shared those aspects with them.

Thank you beautiful souls for having me share this time with you.

Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

I’d rather be inspired by you.

Every day, every hour, every minute, every second.., you create amazing art of nature.

I always wish if I could capture what you produce with my camera, even just a bit of them .

And it is really big challenge which has no goal to achieve.

But I can not stop from taking camera with me and photographing around, because

I am inspired by you, mother earth.

A piece of work of the day 16

The drawing work for the second piece has been done, and my impulse eagerness for drawing works to be done is settling down for now.  Well, this is sequel blog from the previous one.  🙂

It was a bit experimental work to be done for me, but I find that the work has a hint of frangipani behind the colouring, likely because frangipani flowers that I have with me which I had taken some of them seen as fallen on the ground.

And I made a face with all of the pieces placed beside me while I was working. 🙂
