I spend my lunch hour finishing this ATC. I like to draw girls but when I draw men, they always end up looking boyish. (Ooo...my pretty-pretty boy, I want you...M2M's song, hehe). I never draw old people so far, I'm not ready to take the challenge. I like to draw since I was 5 or 6. My sister had a book on learning how to sketch and paint for amateur. At that age, I remember I told my mum that when I grow up, I want to be an artist. But she said, why artist? Better be a doctor or lawyer. Then I dumped the idea of becoming an artist becoz I trust my mum so much. I thought everything she said must be true and that she is always right and always know what is right for me. Later I want to be a scientist, becoz I like astronomy. But now, I'm neither a doctor, a lawyer or a scientist. Haha. Never mind, it's never too late to learn something right? Anyway, that book was very good. I remember the basic idea of drawing and painting from that book until today. Or maybe such young age is just the best age to learn something. We are easily shaped by what we are taught or told. After 20years, now only i think can i understand the techniques taught in the book. For time being, i feel good enough everytime I manage to finish an ATC or an A4 sized painting.
I received a very much expected parcel from kak Ida yesterday. I don't know what to call it but I like it very much kak Ida! M is my favourite letter!! Thank you! I also got these beautiful glittering stamp ink which I request kak Ida to buy for me. They are not available in KK. Again, thank you kak ida! I really, really love them!
