A Journey to my Old Art Sketchbook

This is a continuation of my previous post Looking Back.

These are my art when I was first properly introduced to the drawing and using the watercolor medium. Enjoy. πŸ™‚

I looked forward for every art lesson during that entire summer vacation after graduating from sixth grade. I know others might be better than me at that age, but hiding my art just because of fear of rejection won’t get me or any artist anywhere.

Looking back made me felt how simple my life used to be before. My mind was 100% dedicated to art at that moment, not worrying any other things a regular adult like me would think of. And that we should learn how to keep our complicated lives simple for us to truly appreciate the wonderful things that we may often take for granted.

May we never lose our boundless enthusiasm for something we truly love. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Mel–I’m certainly no art critic, have zero talent in that genre myself–but I think your work is incredibly good; it’s hard to choose a “favorite”–though I think the hands holding the box, as I kept going back to it. God bless you today.


  2. You’re very talented, thank you for sharing Mel. I think it’s very good work. Please keep always enjoying your wonderful passion :-).


  3. Very nice stuff! I started out that way too, drawing and watercolor. The watercolor practice helped me when I switched to acrylic, which is such a stiff media. It helped me retain a sense of flow.


  4. it is no surprise to me at all that you created that sort of work that young! You continue to create such magic everyday for us to enjoy! Fabulous work Mel and thank you for sharing it with us!


Tell me what you think :)
