Watercolour paintings by Almond (Anonymous)

"Nothing particular inspires my paintings. I took some photos (or I saw some photos on internet) which I found beautiful and nice, and I thought it would be interesting to transform them into watercolor, and i chose those photos that I can practice different skills. The painting process is like a meditation for me, I created my own magic world when doing painting. Paintings/the products themselves don’t necessarily have any meaning.

My small reflection: although the lockdown has been lifted, I still continue painting. It becomes a hobby of mine. It reminds me of the creativity, the peace and the passion I have inside me."
