Paint with Me: On a Cool Summer Day with Emil

Paint with Me: On a Cool Summer Day with Emil

Hi there, I hope you’re well and making time for yourself. I’m here to share a bit of my process as a continuation of our "journal/paint with me" series. I also got to try out the new Gansai Tambi watercolor set we started carrying! I already enjoy using the original color set so I was excited to try the lovely new pallet.

I didn’t plan out my process too much for this painting. Some colors in this set reminded me of sweets, so I painted from my memories of donut runs with my partner (the icing one for them and the plain cake donut for me). I let my curiosity and whim in the moment steer this painting, and had a lot of fun. Though I did make myself hungry in the process.

Please feel free to join me if you’d like some company while you draw, paint, or write. Maybe with a snack so you're not also joining me in my cravings, haha!

Wishing you strength and kindness,


The BK team behind the video: Emil for creating the artwork and recording the original footage and Eunice for editing the footage collaboratively with Emil.

    Oh, Emil! That was just wonderful. I learned so much from watching your technique.

    Thank you. I’d love to see more of these.
