The lunar new year is approaching. Here in China the new year starts according to their lunar calendar, and this year that will be on Monday the 4th. That also means that we are leaving the year of the dog and entering the year of the pig. The winter in Shanghai has been much warmer than normal this year. I am working on a new series videos for my Youtube channel, Exploring watercolours. It has taken quite a lot of time, but now when I have planned many of them and started filming I will return to painting normally again. For weekly updates of my doings in the studio I invite you to read my blog, link in the menu bar above! I wish you all a great weekend!
