Sketch of Kilometer Nol Square, Jogjakarta. 55X75cm. Pen over watercolor washes. 75 minutes. My original intention was to capture the scene entirely using pure watercolor techniques, but the paper was partially stale (it’s 5 years old paper anyway) so I have to resort to using pen strokes. My first time using brushpen but I love it, though. . . . _________________ #101travelsketch #101travelsketch2018 #urbansketchers #walkseedraw #jogja #malioboro

Day 4. Got only couple hours to work today. Adding details on the middleground (brick buildings) and dark wall on the right side as frame. Need to take a break for several days: if you work on a single painting for too long, you’ll start to lose your objectivity. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali

Day 3. Adding shading and details on the left wall. Accuracy not really important, actually, but brick lines and windows are very important to enhance perspective. SInce I’m right-handed, it is important to work from upper left to lower right to avoid smudging the finished part of the painting. #workinprogress #watercolor #watercolorpainting #arttherapy #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #bali #kintamani

Day 3. Adding ray of light to the background and adding some foliage to find the right amount of dark tone for the foreground. #watercolor #watercolourpainting #workinprogress #bali #summer #tropical

Work on the background trees. Add some highlights and those banana leaves will pop out. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali

My third attempt to paint a typical Balinese alley scene. Basic wash. My first attempt was almost two years (!) ago, discarded because I felt like I couldn’t really capture the mood of North Bali’s dry season _reddish sunlight and dusty road_on the paper. My second attempt on a larger paper was failed because the paper, turned out, was already stale (yes, there is such thing as stale watercolor paper). Hopefully this third attempt turns out okay. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali #alley #archespaper
