Can I paint? Err...it is evident I need help...



Journal-painting1

I am pretty excited about the re-opening of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam on April 13. I was lucky to have visited in 2002 before it closed for a 10-year renovation in 2003. It is notably famous for the painting The Night Watch which I actually didn't think much of at that time...[I blame it on youth..*winks*]...


Err...it is evident that I need some help when it comes to painting a landscape...*LOL*


Fortunately, there are "tools" to help me with my painting! :)



Check out my step-by-step tutorial on 'Painting' with Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Gelatos. :)



P/s: Happy weekend friends! Don't forget to play along with my guest Lizzy's fussy-cutting and/or handjournaling challenge, LESSology Challenge #24: Are you a Cover girl?, the sketch challenge at Purple Pumpkin and Zeus and Zoe's About Me challenge.
