Another one about chance, discovery and accidents. A little nerdy too. I bought this box of brush markers a couple of weeks ago after having used exclusively watercolours for years. Jumping from the old trusted watercolour technique to the brushes was a huge step for me and I wasn’t totally comfortable about it but somehow to change for a while felt like a good idea. After some weeks, I started to think I had made a mistake. I didn’t quite like the too strong colours and the agressive ink coming out of the brushes. But then yesterday, by total accident and with no reason I found myself in an art supply shop in Shinjuku, where I saw this paper displayed next to the same brushes I have. The paper was of course in Japanese, which means I don’t understand much of it but in there, on the upper left corner, there was this tiny photo explaining you can mix the inks with water! All of a sudden I got really excited about my brushes and run into a cafe to try mixing the mix. I don’t need to say a new world of possibilities opened for me. I am so happy with this newly found technique now.
Oh, call me a nerd but I’m in love with it. ♥️
"I'm from Libya," he said. I don't know what to say. It's as if he'd told me he'd just come from his father's funeral.
