My 2012 Resolution

I’m not used to making a new year resolution. But somehow last year I made one based on a yesteryears’ wish I couldn’t accomplish. It was to do watercolour painting again. 

Since I knew that the start is the hardest part and maintaining it is never easy, my trick is to involve other people in the process. A tip from my brother, a resolution should be told to others. A commitment will be easier to be ignored and forgiven if it was kept just by ourselves than if it was witnessed by other people. So I put myself in a watercolour course for a start and keep uploading my works at my facebook account to be seen by my friends.



 
The cherries were my first watercolour painting in early 2012 after almost a decade I let my brush dusted and my paints dried, while the oriental poppies were one of my latest botanical paintings. I feel the difference. This progress is the reward of my 2012 resolution. I am happy that it is not just a wish anymore. I feel contented that I made and kept my 2012 resolution. And I’ll still keep it.

Happy new year 2013!

Mbak Eunike, salam kenal! Nama saya Emillia. Saya penggemar baru mbak. Seorang newbie juga dalam dunia watercolor (saya baru mulai water coloring tahun ini hehehe). Rasanya menyenangkan membaca tulisan mbak dari entry pertama. Karya-karya mbak juga luar biasa. Saya pun ingin suatu saat bisa menghasilkan karya botanical seperti mbak. Namun saya rasa, di Indonesia saya masih belum nemu tempat les menggambar realis. Jadinya saya menggambar dan mempelajari watercolor dengan style saya sendiri dan otodidak. Medium ini begitu membuat saya jatuh cinta, sekaligus obat patah hati saya hehehe. Anyway mbak, membaca entry mbak yang ini, saya jadi ingin tahu awal mula mbak menekuni dunia melukis sebelum tahun 2012 mulai lagi. Apakah mbak dulunya mahasiswi seni rupa atau dkv? Terima kasih mbak. Saya masih punya banyak pertanyaan sama mbak. Tapi nanti lagi sajaa. Semoga ndak bosan ya mbak kalau nanti saya tanya2 lagii. Sukses selalu mbak eunike! ����
