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.

A piece of work of the day 15

Today I am eager to draw away at least 2 pieces.

First one is a kind of re-drawing work of an image I had done for my friend.

The re-drawn work named ‘Divine Plumes 2’ has been uploaded in here.

Now am just starting on second image to draw.  I don’t know what exactly I want to push out but probably a little experimental mandala.  I will update once it is done, which will be 16.  🙂

Fallen frangipani flowers which I picked up at a street a couple of days ago on my morning walk helps me pumping imagination.

Thank you for stopping by.
