[#1] England, Italy & Switzerland
The first painting was and still is my favourite in the collection because it was based on my favourite countries that we have visited. Italy and Switzerland hold a special place in my heart because they were the countries the hubby and I visited on our honeymoon. London was the furthest that I had ever travelled to (so far) and I enjoyed every minute of my time there. The Big Ben has always been one of my favourite iconic structures.
|I put together this piece based on inspirations I found on Google|
I love bright colours so I was going for the bright pop-art look rather than trying to make it look realistic. I thought the final piece looks awesome =)
[#2] Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia & Malaysia
The next painting in this collection featured all our favourite neighbouring countries! Gotta love how easily accessible these beautiful countries are to us =)
|Realised that it was easier to paint with an easel so I got one from Art Friend for a decent price.|
On hindsight, I should have grouped Hong Kong with China but well, the idea for the Hong Kong junk wouldn't leave my head! I just had to paint it!
I probably squeezed too many countries in one canvas but well, it's still nice =)
[#3] Taiwan, South Korea & Japan
I was so inspired after returning from Tokyo Disneyland that it became the main feature of my next painting. Japan is one of my favourite countries of all time to visit! I've been there 3 times and counting! *grin*
|Japan basically dominated the whole painting! Haha|
It took me a long time to finish this painting because of our move into our new house. Luckily I'm OCD and didn't like to leave projects unfinished! *laughs*
My girl loves the Cinderella Castle that I painted and used it as the inspiration for her own drawing =)
[#4] Australia & Brunei
And finally, two countries which are not really related but put together because I felt like it! Anyway, Australia is located too far down under to be logically paired with any country other than New Zealand and it's unlikely that I'll visit New Zealand anytime soon (I prefer to visit Europe for the same price).
This painting was surprisingly easy; I completed it in a few nights after work =)
Oh and by the way, I like my paintings to "flow" from one to the other so I had the idea of making them link in some way.
|Yes, the trains are linked too! =)|
I'll be adding China, Phillipines, Scotland and France at the end of the year so watch out for it on my Instagram =)
I hope this has inspired you to come up with your own painting! You don't have to pay big bucks to go to Arteastiq to paint. You can do it at home with materials you can grab at the nearest Art Friend or even Daiso! Let me know how it goes =)
