Something I wanted to try with watercolors for some time now - a night scene. Tokyo is a strange place - there are a lot of empty but brightly lit streets at night and the sky is never perfectly black because of the city lights. Especially the clouds get really highlighted by the glare from the city.

Instead of going for the obvious - cool looking, new built high rise offices I just took a photo while doing some late night shopping and used this as a reference for this painting. I wanted to paint some of the lonely night streets.

I like this idea and how the picture turned out so I’m thinking about making a series of this.

Technical stuff:  

  • Medium: HOLBEIN Waterford natural 300g/m cotton paper
  • Sketch: Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil grade HB
  • Line: COPIC Multiliner SP 0.5mm
  • Colours: my main 48 colour Schmincke set

ずっと水彩で試してみたかった夜の風景を描きました。東京は不思議な街で、誰もいない場所でも、いつも明るいです。 街のあかりが空にも反射していて、特に雲は街の光を受けて奇妙な明るさになっています。

そして真新しい高層ビルではなく、深夜にちょっと買い物へ行く時に横切るような雑居ビルを描きたくなりました。 一人で歩くと、すこしこわいかもしれません。;)

出来上がった絵が気に入ったので、これをシリーズにしようかと思っています。

ツール詳細

  • 紙: ウォーターフォード水彩紙 ナチュラルホワイト 300g 
  • 下描き: HB Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni 鉛筆
  • 線画: コピック マルチライナーSP 0.5
  • 着色: 48色のシュミンケ水彩セット

Unfortunately, while the cherries were in bloom in Tokyo either I was busy, or it was raining so I could not paint outside. I took some photos of the sakura near my house to paint later and this is the result.

This painting was done on a watercolour paper sample we got while shopping in Sekaido art supplies store in Shinjuku. I wanted to try something a little bit different than usual: I first did a pencil sketch, then painted the picture using my Schmincke watercolours. When I was done with the colours the pencil lines where almost invisible so to add details and depth I used some white opaque paint and Conté pencil charcoal

PS. I was pleased with the quality of the CANSON paper. It matched my style of painting quite well and put up with the masking tape, paints, pencil and charcoal very well.

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: CANSON Heritage 300g/m cold pressed cotton paper
  • Sketch:  Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil 2B
  • Colours: My Schmincke 48 colors watercolours set
  • Black lines: Conté à paris PIERRE NOIRE B and 3B

今年は桜を外で描けなくて残念でしたが、近所にある神田川の桜を撮って参考に描きました。

このまえ新宿の世界堂で水彩の買い物をしたらCANSON HERITAGE水彩紙のサンプルをもらえたので、試しとしていつもとちょっと違う描き方で桜を描いてみました。最初の鉛筆線画をスキャンせず、そのまま水彩を塗って、最終的に白い不透明な絵の具とピエール ノアール鉛筆ででティールを増やしてます。これでちょっと奥行き感を作って、絵がまとまりました。

PS:試した水彩紙よかったです

Studying with an invisible illness

Studying when you’re sick is one of worst things. Trying to study when you are always sick is even worse and having teachers or lecturers constantly debate your well-being or how sick you actually are, can be one of the most depressing situations. I have suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome since I was 16, all through my A-Levels and through my first year of University. I passed everything! Perhaps I didn’t get the perfect grade, but for me that is not the most important thing anymore. Here I have listed some of the tips which help me study:

1.       Don’t overdo it! Set yourself a goal, maybe two or three pages of reading or a page of notes on reading. The worst thing you can try and do is bash on regardless. It is important you understand your body and your limits.

2.       Study in small bursts. I find that studying in small sets of 20 minutes with a 20 minute break are great for me. It allows me time to focus on what I need to do, but I don’t tire myself out studying for hours and hours on end. Naturally, these times can be managed to your own personal needs.

3.       Set up a nice space. I can’t stress how important it is that you are comfortable when you are studying, especially when you’re not feeling that great. If you know you are going to study in bed, make up you have everything you need in arms reach, including snacks and drinks. If you are going to study at a desk, the library, a café, the same rules apply! Make sure the chairs are comfy, that there is enough light and that you are comfortable leaving your stuff (in case of bathroom breaks or emergencies.) It is also worth noting that some pain medications can take up to 30 mins to work, so plan ahead and take them before!

4.       Certain classes will need prioritisation. This was super hard for me. In A-Levels, I studied what I wanted to study, despite certain teachers trying to persuade me otherwise. I chose three relatively hard subjects; English language, German and Psychology. Both my German classes were at 9am, a time which I super struggle to get up for. Therefore, I knew I had to prioritise my German studies over my English studies, classes which I attended regularly. It is important to note that keeping a healthy balance between all subjects is important too!

5.       Podcasts and audio books! Not feeling that great but still need to study? Find podcasts and audio books on relevant topics and listen to them while lying down or in bed. (I used to make my own recordings of my psychology book to listen to when I needed to take a day off.)

6.       Don’t be afraid to take a day off. When I was at the peak of my illness, I was still trying to force myself to get to all my classes or to study. Now I realise that I don’t have to feel guilty for taking a day or two to recover. I try not to let these become weeks, but sometimes it happens. And that is ok. If you are constantly punishing yourself, you will never feel good about the amount of work you do complete!

7.       Planning to go to University? This links in with my previous point. Don’t feel the need to rush into everything so quickly. You can take a year off. You can recover. You can do things you love to do in this time. I took a gap year, in which I mostly spent a lot of time with my Mum and sister before going to University. It helped me so much.

8.       Suffer from brain fog? Use memory techniques such as colour coding words, highlighting important information, mnemonics, reading aloud and quizzes. When I suffer from brain fog, I find colour-coding and visual aids the most helpful. Study groups which break down subjects into easier, more manageable bites of information are also super great!

9.       Stay away from caffeine! A lot of people I know depend on caffeine in order to get themselves started. While caffeine can help boost your energy levels for a small amount of time or focus your brain, too much caffeine can have negative effects on your sleep, which may make you feel worse the next day. Try and limit your caffeine to two or three cups a day if you absolutely need a cup of coffee!

10.   Don’t panic. You are doing the best that you can. If you fail, it is not the end of the world. I wish somebody had told me this sooner. If you fail an exam, you can do it again, at a later date. If you fail a year, you can do it again. This happens to people who aren’t sick all the time. So don’t worry. Just do your best.

Shiro and Pidge are adorable

No matter how you see them, they always are.

For the purposes of this post I’m gonna refer to Pidge as she/her but if ya hc her otherwise its up to you.

So when they all introduced themselves, Hunk showed everyone the “pic of Pidge’s girlfriend”. Don’t tell me Shiro didn’t have doubts when he saw it. Whatever doubts he had, he didn’t voice it.

Finding the Green Lion sure must’ve been fun ;)

And its cute that when Pidge was rambling, Shiro calmed her down by citing what Sam Holt used to say. (Don’t tell me he didn’t say this on purpose)

“Listen, our commander on the Kerberos mission is the smartest man I’ve ever met. And he always said, “If you get too worried about what could go wrong, you might miss a chance TO DO SOMETHING GREAT.”

It made her smile; and

“Go, be GREAT.”

HOW CUTE IS THIS

Later on when they attempted to retrieve the Red Lion, Shiro remembered that the Kerberos team used to be captured on that very ship. And Pidge was dead set on finding more prisoners, with Shiro also dead set on NOT doing so and following through their plans to retrieve the Red Lion.

“Pidge we don’t have time. We have to get the Red Lion and get back to Ares.”

“In war we have to make hard choices. Now let’s get moving.”


So, what changed his mind?

“Commander Holt is your father?”

From this moment onwards, whatever doubt he had had been replaced by certainty. He knew Pidge was in fact, Katie Holt.

“I’m coming with you”

  • Keith: “What?”
  • Shiro: “I remember where the prisoners are held. Keith, you go find the Red Lion.
  • Keith: “By myself?”
  • Shiro: “Minor change of plans, you’ll be fine”

Sure Shiro, minor change of plans.

He knew the Holts are smart, so “Excellent, Pidge.” He’s impressed.

Now don’t tell me she’s NOT impressed by Shiro either. She’s a tech expert. That arm sure looks fantastic. I mean even I’m impressed.


Revelation of Shiro “attacking” Matt led to his own disbelief, and he wanted to investigate info on the crashed Galra ship.

“I’m coming with you!”

I love it when two characters say the same thing in different episodes.

And also when there’s protecting involved

“I’m sorry, Pidge!”

SO. MUCH. PROTECTING.

He. Shielded. Her. From. The. Blast. And before this specific point in time they didn’t know the Lions could come to their rescue.

At the end of the day, while everyone was here;

These two were having a beautiful friendship bonding moment

“I’m so sorry I doubted you”  - Pidge

“Your brother and father would be proud of you, Katie.”

”Don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me”

- Shiro
