World Watercolor Month – Week 1

1/31 – If you are an italian in Belfast, it’s almost impossible you never met Tani: he lives in Northern Ireland but originally he is from Sicily. He is a musician and you can find him often playing around the city. I met him in Caffè Nero and I decided that my World Watercolor Month would start like this:

tanil2/31 – For the second day I couldn’t think of what to draw. I often use watercolours, but when “you have to”, it tastes more of exercise. So, let’s make it fully an exercise: I chose a still life, tis time on watercolour paper under the curious eyes of my cat Muffin.

bagelsl7/31 – In Belfast Botanic Gardens there is a beautiful liberty glasshouse containing rare plants, with original and bizzarre shapes and colours. So I can’t tell you why I chose to draw a pretty banal one, but it happened. The name, at least, sounds pretty exotic: Sansevieria Trifasciata. Again Ecoline.
