Hi there! This long weekend, my friends and I decided to have a fun, chill afternoon. We spent time at home hanging out, painting, catching up on each others’ lives, eating yummy Taiwanese snacks and drinking homemade boba!
Setup all ready, we decided to do a little early celebration of the upcoming Lunar New Year and paint some cute dogs for the 2018 Chinese Zodiac Year of the Dog! We picked a Pomeranian-Husky (aka POMSKY), Wire Fox Terrier, Pomeranian (or Jigglypuff :P), Shiba Inu, and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi!
This was my first time leading a group of people how to paint (who are not children lol) and it was so much fun! It was good to improve upon my teaching skills and explain instructions to others while painting. I would say that it went easy, and this may be because it was with my close friends and they are super patient with me. Overall, it was a lot of great fun, I learned a lot about how to conduct myself in front of a group of people. Also, I think my friends and I discovered some hidden talents from some unsuspecting few members of the group! Most of all, it was gratifying to see them get lost in what they were doing; they kept painting and working on their portraits without realizing that almost 4 hours had gone by and it was almost dinnertime!
Here’s the finishing touches to our works, along with some shots of our yummy snacks, black milk tea, and matcha green milk tea (thanks Chef Andy!) 😀
Check out our final pieces! What a great feeling of accomplishment with our first attempt at group painting. So happy to hear that some of these are going to be in our friends’ nursery room! Glad with the color palette we ended up choosing for the color gradient in background! 🙂 Also, peep my corgi with the missing butt. LOl. They said I should finish his body because it is so
disturbing distracting that he has no booty. What do you think?
Hangout sesh was a great success! Can’t wait for the next one! 🙂 Maybe you should join us?
