When I first saw an ad for the SM Stationery Art Fest last year, I told myself, “One day, I’ll also do a demo there.”
A lot of you have been asking me how I store my paintings, so here it goes.
Before — when I didn’t know any better — I would store my watercolor artworks by wrapping them in book plastic covers and securing with scotch tape or masking tape. Then, done. But after a few years of research and suggestions from friends, I learned there are more appropriate ways on how to store your artworks to help them last longer especially in this tropical, humid climate.
Last year, I bought myself a desk easel. It was the solution to ending the frequent neck and back pains I was having due to wrong sitting posture while working. As my drafting table is most probably lost somewhere now (last time I saw it was 5-6 years ago in my dorm room, decaying I assume), I would only resort to my level-planed study table and work there. But after a while, I started having stiff neck, headaches and back pains. I needed a small easel where I could prop my paper/board there and work without having to bend my head and upper body for hours. And so, the hunt for that perfect desk easel began.
I recently made a watercolor illustration for my friend and managed to film the whole process! Click on the video above to watch. Enjoy! 🙂
