My messy work desk.

I am an art enthusiast, a planner addict, and a journalling hobbyist. I believe that in art, all you have to do is love and enjoy what you do. 

As long as you practice and enjoy the process, you’ll eventually develop your skill and improve your art.

I’ve been using brush pens, washi tapes, stickers and ephemeras on my planner for two years now. But this time, I thought maybe it is time to learn a new hobby.

I attempted to start learning watercolor about a year ago, I think? Or two years at most, but I wasn’t able to continue when I got busy.

Now, I started practicing again. I’ll probably post a separate blog about my starter materials. For this blog, I did an activity that experts say should be the first activity for everyone who wants to learn how to watercolor.

YouTube Academy

Naturally, nowadays, when you want to learn something, the first thing that you do is check YouTube. YouTube has a lot of resources for just about anything you want to learn.

As for me, I tried watching several watercolor beginner tutorials on YouTube, but this one by Meredith was the only one that made sense for me.

She discussed basic things that no other YouTuber mentioned. As per her, she believes that once people figured things out, they just stop talking about it.

An example of these are the basic things that beginners would love to know, like the two water wells, how much water to use, what do with a dirty pallete, etc. She talks about it in a way that is easy to understand.

Anyway, watch her video here and do your first activity too.

I honestly have no idea what I am doing, maybe my paper is a bit cheap, but so far, no matter how this looks like, I am satisfied with the way mine turned out.

Watercolor Activity

I’m not in a hurry. I’m sure I’ll get better.
