Recently Canson Papers send me a free sampling of their gorgeous drawing books. I have always been a huge fan of their papers and drawing books. Most of the watercolors I do are done on Canson cold press watercolors blocks. I was very surprised when Kimberly Bolduc, a manager at Canson sent me tons of free drawing books to try out. I felt I must be good at drawing if companies are sending me their stuff for no charge out of the blue. A celebrity endorsement of sorts. So I finally got to give them a trial run. Inside the War Museum in Seoul is a room that holds 3 ships. One is quite large. That is the one I drew and painted. The place was full of little kids. Many looked like they were on school trips. I became a big attraction. Everyone wanted to take photos with me. Doing my drawing started to become secondary. It's a real struggle but I don't mind. Some people lingered for a long time watching me. I was able to make the painting come out pretty good under the pressure of the circumstances. Notice how nice it looks on paper I didn't have to pay for.
