February Embrace Your Art Challenge

Medium: Ink & Watercolor
Theme: Subject in some kind of setting

Day 1: Root


The beginning of growth. Without my parents and my family, I don't think I would pursue art when I grew up. They have been very supportive ever since I was little and without the colorful story books they provided for me, I probably wouldn't be interested in art. My Chinese family name is actually a pictograph of two trees (林), so I think adding the trees fits the prompt.

Left to Right: Nanny (she works for us ever since I was born), parents, me, big brother and little brother.

Day 2: Place


The place I feel the most safe is next to my SO on our sofa.

Tried different colors of ink to see how they will look with the watercolors instead of just black line work.

Day 3: Music


We went for my first trip to Disneyland last month and I was reminded of one of my favorite song. For me the song is a reminder that it's never too late to chase your dream.

I had a bit of a problem with the lettering for this one, the ink was not opaque enough and was very hard to control.
