Time to get some paid art classes

Yesterday I had my first painting class. I do art about 3 years now, but I am self-thought artist. Well I wouldn´t really call myself an artist yet 🙂

I have started doing art on very strange circumstances. There was a guy of course. I was very much in love with him, but it just wasn´t right timing, maybe we weren´t meant to be for each other. He left thousands miles away and I found it hard to deal with all the emotions. One day I found myself standing in front of the shelf with art supplies in the shop thinking: „what the hell am I doing here? I have no idea about art.“ But I saw how my hand is reaching for brushes and paints. It was just incredible, something what was probably meant to be and I had no control over that. I got home and started painting and I draw and paint since then (with huge gaps sometimes though).

Back to the class now. This is my first time taking paid classes with a tutor and it is gonna be a great experience. On first class I learnt so much, techniques I had no idea about until now and just those simple easy advices opened another door for me when it comes to watercolours.

Amarican journal

IMG_2439Since I was little I loved writing journals, making crafts or presents for my friends and family. I loved to capture memories by camera or in writing word. As older I get as more difficult I find to find time for those thigs. I had lately couple of months, when I wasn´t working much so I needed somehow keep myself busy. Last year I went on a road trip to west coast of USA with my friends. We flew to Seattle hired car and went down the coast to LA. We didn´t plan the trip and were deciding 24 hours before where to stay calculating how long will take to get there. I have amazing memories and since then other than road trip I am not doing haha. I might make some travel memories here as well but this article is about journaling.

I got great present for Christmas from my friend, American travel journal. I promised myself I need to fill it up with memories, but took me months until I got there. Firstly it was difficult to think about all experiences we have had as it was very intense and then I didn´t have time. But finally I got there and I have started. I did write my journal on the trip and draw couple of pictures so I rewrited words to my American journal and added photos and drawing. I haven´t finished yet, but here is small taste of the idea of´capture my memories in travel artist journal´…
