Two flames


Painting is one of those things one hardly finds the time for. Such a shame, as I can hardly imagine a more medidative and restful activity, in particular when you're stuck at home on a rainy afternoon.
Sorry about the pics quality, by the way. It is always very difficult for me to catch the delicate shades of a watercolour -  and yes, I should definitely improve my photographer skills. : )

I still hope you will feel a bit of the autumn scent and chilly breeze I wanted to depict here. This is one of my favourite periods of the year, and I wish the gorgeous colours and parfums of autumn could last much longer! : )

  1. autumn is my favorite season of all...i just love its crisp colors. So envious of your watercolor skills. Am not quite there yet and oftentimes I messed up a pretty good illustrations when I start coloring them. Your work is beyond beautiful.

    1. thank you so much! I messed up quite a lot of drawings too (most of them, actually), and I still think that coloring is one of the most difficult steps. but I have a slightly colorblind boyfriend that encourages me a lot! :)

  4. è anche il mio periodo preferito... i colori caldi e accesi e quel senso di mono no aware (in giappone è utilizzato per esprimere il sentimento che si prova nell'osservare la bellezza e la caducità della natura) che solo l'autunno ha e che con il tuo acquerello hai saputo cogliere in pieno!!!
