I made up my mind before I began and started step by step. Drawing the sky was not as easy as I expected. The bottom part of the clouds was a little darker, unlike the sky. I wanted to try with a grey color, but it didn’t seem totally grey. I had a picture of this architecture when I went to Europe, so I tried drawing the facade. I used the picture of the sky, which was in a kit as a reference. I had lots of fun drawing and the achievement I made meant a lot to me. I thought watercolor was really difficult, but then it turns out to be great. Much appreciation goes to the artist, thanks a lot!

I was going through my photo album and found an in-flight meal, so I drew the meal. The next time when I get on an airplane, I should definitely take a picture of windows or a lobby of an airport to draw

I started drawing when I traveled. It was a very different experience from just taking photos and leaving. When I opened my sketchbook after a trip, I felt different emotions than when I look through an album of photos. It felt more immersive and special.
A lot of people were envious of my drawings from my travels. But the pictures we draw are for ourselves, so you don't have to be as good as artists. I hoped that a lot of people would want to feel the same way as I did about my travel drawings, so I held a small exhibition, and started a workshop.
I'm constantly teaching online and offline classes, and I'm constantly drawing pictures with many students.
I am looking forward to the day I can draw and travel with my future child :)
