In Copenhagen August of 2017 during a two-weeks bicycle trip from Netherlands to Norway to collect materials for my next painting series. Riding my beloved Surly bike and wearing an Uniqlo jogger pants my-only pants for the whole journey. Since I was travelling on bicycle with all my luggage I had to cut on weight so I brought only two pairs of shirts one pants and three pairs of underwear. In terms of biketouring comfort and durability are the key here and that goes for the costume too…

Day 4. Got only couple hours to work today. Adding details on the middleground (brick buildings) and dark wall on the right side as frame. Need to take a break for several days: if you work on a single painting for too long you'll start to lose your objectivity. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali

Day 3. Adding shading and details on the left wall. Accuracy not really important actually but brick lines and windows are very important to enhance perspective. SInce I'm right-handed it is important to work from upper left to lower right to avoid smudging the finished part of the painting. #workinprogress #watercolor #watercolorpainting #arttherapy #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #bali #kintamani

Day 3. Adding ray of light to the background and adding some foliage to find the right  amount of dark tone for the foreground. #watercolor #watercolourpainting #workinprogress #bali #summer #tropical

Work on the background trees. Add some highlights and those banana leaves will  pop out. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali

My third attempt to paint a typical Balinese alley scene. Basic wash. My first attempt was almost two years (!) ago discarded because I felt like I couldn't really capture the mood of North Bali's dry season _reddish sunlight and dusty road_on the paper. My second attempt on a larger paper was failed because the paper turned out was already stale (yes there is such thing as stale watercolor paper). Hopefully this third attempt turns out okay. #watercolor #watercolorpainting #bali #alley…

My painting studio converted from a small attic with DIY walls from used window panes arranged in random fashion. In rainy season it gets so cozy and warm sometimes I just want to lay on the wooden floor and sleeping instead of working. #paintingstudio #watercolorartist #watercolorpainting

Got a present from my cycling buddy who've just got back from South Korea. Shinhan Professional Watercolor pigments set. Fine-grained but rather opaque and mixed rather too smoothly for me (I love blotchy textured uneven color mixing). This pigment set is perfect for anime-styled illustrations. #watercolor #shinhan

Sketching with a crooked-nib pen and watercolor brushes. My muscle memory doesn't really approve this kind of tools though. Need more exercises. Media: non-waterproof chinese ink on deGoya paper.  ____________________ . #sketch #urbansketching #inksketch #Bandung #Gempol

(Latepost) Sketching Oslo Cathedral. The late afternoon sunlight was very warm in color and inviting.  #urbansketchers #urbansketching #norway #oslo #oslocathedral
