Andy has a very friendly and great personality he seems that friend that you knew all life long and it is fun to engage with.  Andy has a great Blog dedicated to his life change, his journey going from UK to China. The Blog is filled with his beautiful street photography, travelling experiences, advice,  suggestions and daily life happening, he always bring me a good laugh while reading his posts!

Discovering China

In 2005 Andy Smart opted for a life change and hit the road; a truly amazing three year journey across China, South East Asia, South Korea and Mongolia. After finally setting roots down in Beijing he finally found the time to write about the adventure. Andy writes with humor in mind so if you want something to put a smile on your face then grab ‘Just Turn Left at the Mountain, multi-entry trials meandering across Chinese borders’. In his down to earth streetwise style Andy writes with the sole intention of making his readers laugh out loud and brighten up their day.” 

Andy also developed his own TEFL teaching and living in China.

Illustration – Friends

Yesterday I wanted to use my new French Sennelier Watercolor!

So I needed to create something!

I love Illustration, and sometimes I like drawing cute characters a little bit out of my ordinary watercolor paintings and sketches. Creativity it is something that there are no words to describe it! Inspiration can come from anything and often start with something to ends with something totally different from what was inside your mind it is a very fascinating and abstract process, that’s how I call it! While I was thinking what to begin with to start my drawing, the word “Friends” came up to my mind I don’t know why, at the same time I was on my Pinterest pinning things for my boards and I came across some cute dolls. I was captured by their nice faces and big eyes and instantly I felt the wish to draw them. I quickly made my sketch, when the word “Friends” came back to mind again and that was it!!! It was perfect for my new illustration. I am going to dedicate this drawing to all the amazing Bloggers Friends I found here on WP community. 🙂

Some technical details: I quickly sketched first with a pencil #2 HB few light lines just to give me an idea to the two figures and the flower. For this Illustration I was excited to use my new Sennelier watercolor. I love Sennellier their watercolors are beautiful and very pigmented rich and luminous honey-based. I purchased this metal travel box on Amazon it is small and easy to carry almost the size of an iPhone it can fit anywhere.

Sennelier Watercolors Travel BoxThis Watercolor set is inspired by the bright and lively palette of Southern France. Each set contains 12 half pans of top quality French Artists Watercolor and two built-in palettes within a compact and sturdy metal case. Reformulated with an increased honey content gives each watercolor incomparable brilliance and luminosity while acting as a preservative to extend the paints longevity.
I love the fluidity of the colors a little goes a long way. I am very happy how my illustration turned out. I gave the finish touch going over with a black ink Pigma Micron pen 0.3 to finish and shade.
