Art post: statues + a new edition of BCM

It's no secret that I much more prefer painting at my leisure from photo than doing live model painting, which has to go much, much faster. I really like taking my time, and you can't rush watercolour, so my teacher suggested that I make good use of all those statues I photographed at the Louvre during my October 2018 trip to France, and paint some of those :). 

So yeah, no actual real human nudity is involved in this post, but just to be sure, I've put all the pictures behind the cut. And if you want BCM, just scroll all the way down.

Saltwater sandals are they worth it?

Blog header

Saltwater sandals are a bit of a cult hit on the gram, etc.
They are now also available in Europe. Because a lot of people online seemed very pleased with them (incidentally I’m pretty sure most of these people got theirs for free) and most importantly: I liked the look of them, I figured I’d invest in a pair. 

Now are they worth it? 
If you don’t feel like reading an entire post, let me get straight to it: very much NO.

Art post: portraits

Photo of the day: 18.9.2018 (day 261)

As some of you might know, I'm in art school. Not full time, just a painting class at the local part-time art college: 2 evenings and Saturday morning. Because I've painted quite a lot this year, I've decided to do some art posts on my blog, also :).  
These are in chronological order and all of them are potraits after photo.

Catch-up post: the Saturday of Made in Asia

GOOD THRU DATE live

A few years ago, Lora wrote a review of Made in Asia in BCM, addressing the overcrowding as the Crowd. 
A crowd so dense it deserves the capital C. 
This was definitely the return of the Crowd, and it sucked.

Catch-up post: the Friday of Made in Asia

Made in Asia 

The Friday of Made in Asia is notoriously the quietest day. 
We had kinda expected to be busier than it was, on account of it being a school holiday, but nope, still blissfully not overrun with people :).

Seeing GOOD THRU DATE live for the first time

GOOD THRU DATE live

This is not a real concert review per sé, that will be published in the next edition of BCM, because I’m not a broken record so I’m not repeating myself if I can help it ;). The review in BCM will also have professional grade photos by Bert, this is basically just me sharing a bunch of photos from the GOOD THRU DATE concert at Le Garage Creative Music in Liège, Belgium from Saturday, March 2. 
I had a really good time at the gig, catching up with people I don’t see very often and hanging out. 
And the music was REALLY good, too, which is always a definite bonus. 
I interviewed the band (which you’ll also be able to read in the next edition of BCM) and had an all-round good time. 
Can’t ask for more :). 

In any case, I look forward to seeing them live at Made in Asia. And if you can get there to see them and like Jrock, I absolutely recommend it! 

And now: PHOTOS! And maybe a few videos, too :).
