'HOT' PAINTING TIPS


Hello guys ! 
This is Hot ; it will soon be followed by Cold. I’ll explain about Hot and Cold on my next post. It has been a very long time since my latest painting (which is The Cherry Season, by the way), as much as I like to paint, this activity always takes a lot of time. 

« I wish i could (do this or that) better » is what I often hear from some people, and the answer I always think of is « What are you waiting for ? ». I believe there are people born with the talents, and people born with the passion. The talented ones gets to do whatever they want without learning - which is not my case. If you go to my blog archives, you will find paintings that are ridiculous but I am happy they are, because that proves I have improved, and I should keep practicing to get even better. If you love painting, drawing or whatever your passion is, you just have to practice and experiment a lot. You sure will be satisfied of the evolution of your savoir-faire. 

Here are some tips that I can share as a passionate amateur of painting :


LE CHAT BIO LAUNDRY LIQUID



Hey there ! 
I am already on my first school break. Finally, I'll have some time to put acrylic on the canvas I bought last month ! Well, this year I will come up with a lot of graphic design projects. I also decided from now on, I will share more personal stuffs and thoughts, you will find this in the lifestyle/journal category. But for now, let me  reintroduce one of my favorite packaging project : The LECHAT BIO laundry liquid. The concept mixes the natural and the mechanic aspects to highlight the fact this product is 100% bio (even the mechanic production part). Can you picture yourself finding this packaging in the supermarket ? Would you buy this product ?


MAROON V CONTEST



Hello buddies !
Summer has come to an end, I'm finally back to school ! I am getting prepared to have the most exiting but hard and tiring school year.
My best friend Veounette requested me to participate to a Maroon 5 Album Cover Contest. The album is called "V". I have listened to the full album and I gladly suggest you to do the same. I have been very inspired by the tracks Animals, Unkiss Me, Sugar and of course "Lost Stars" from Begin Again movie.  Based on the love songs from "V", my inspirations came from the two sides of a woman : the strong and wild part against the sentimental, beautiful fragile soul.


HANOI THROUGH THE WINDOW

vqdvq

I was born in Hanoi but I never had much chance to get to know my city. Ten years ago, I participated in a drawing contest about Hanoi. Innocently, I named my master piece « Hanoi through the window ( Hà Nội qua cửa sổ ) ». My family used to live in the old streets of Hanoi. I remember myself standing by the window, admiring our capital city, but since I was too short, the view was mostly red roofs and blue sky. You can picture my drawing now, can’t you ?

I have grown up, get taller but my vision of Hanoi is not complete yet. I shot my friend Äahn in Hanoi, but I only checked my photographs once I'm back in France. As I opened my picture files, I decided to share my view as a vietnamese student abroad, by introducing them in a special way. 


FAREWELL TO HANOI


Hanoi, 36 Old Streets


To my Hanoi,

French people use "cross the street like a parisian" (Traverser à la Parisienne) to call pedestrians who don't follow the highway code. They obviously have no clue about crossing the street like a vietnamese ! Crossing the street in Vietnam is a real art and every vietnamese are Picassos. Every year, I have to learn to overcome all the vehicles alive. The streets are packed with scooters, bikes, and cars, if you expected them to stop to let you pass with a kind smile, just remember that no one sees you, no one hears you ! The only advice I can give is to walk confidently. Let the cars, the big buses and the trucks pass, you better cross when it’s mostly scooters.
