To rest and relax. As times goes by, I find  more and more that I am truly relaxing when I am being productive. And mostly that involves reading a good book or doing something artsy, like drawing or painting.

One of the challenges for me has been to properly incorporate painting and color into my drawings. It is not a medium I am the most comfortable with, but I have been determined to self-teach myself its art. It's been two days now that I have been playing with colors, trying out shades, using different brushes. I have really been enjoying myself, and I think it shows. If you have been following my Instagram account, you probably have seen my recent works. I want to continue practicing the art of painting with gouache at least once a day if not a couple of times each week, before I tackle other types of paint (acrylic? oil?). I have also been considering enrolling in an art class, but I don't know if I will have that kind of time once I return to the US. Either way, I want to continue exploring different techniques and see where each one leads me.

But for now take a look at the elephant I drew and painted today. I love how it came out and cannot wait to frame it. What do you think?
