Painting WIP

No idea what I’m going for here yet. I haven’t painted in acrylics for a while now. Especially figurative…if ever? I picked up my acrylic paints again just to experiment and see if I could still paint. Well some random sketching with the paint turned to this. I find myself drawing satyress’ a lot in the past few years now. There’s something about the figurative rhythm that I’m just drawn towards. It’s fun? :D

I use to care a lot about how people would view me or think of me if I drew what I want. It’s probably why I treated my sketchbooks like sacred secret diaries if anything. I didn’t want people to judge me. Now that I’m old…older…something, I know now life is too short to care about how others perceive you. Not everyone will love and not everyone will hate you. Just be the best version of yourself you can be…even if it’s a weirdo that draws nothing but satyresses :B

Photography: China

Soooo….I went to China in the last two weeks of January. It was kind of a last minute planned trip as I wasn’t planning to travel again till last year but I couldn’t pass up another opportunity to do some photography in China! The last time I went to China was two years ago and it was only to Canton. This time I went to Beijing and Shanghai and the surrounding cities and towns. I don’t remember the names because it was a lot of grounded covered in the two weeks I was there. The trip was quite an exhausting one so it was more of an exploration vacation than relaxing vacation.
I took a lot of pictures but these were my favorites of the batch. If I could tell you the specific names of the places I would, but I don’t remember the names of the places. I spent a good chunk of the vacation sick :\
Oh well.
