GUEST DOODLEWASH: Touring Thailand

Doodlewash by Choowong Ki / ชูวงค์ กิ๊

My name is Choowong, but most of my social network friends who follow me know me by my username of “KiBangkok” (follow me on Instagram and view my website here!). I am Thai, living in Bangkok. I had never been interested in Art until after I graduated from the Business school of Ramkhamheang University in Bangkok. Due to my kidney sickness and pressure from work, I had been seeking a way to reduce the stress and worries from my suffering.

Doodlewash by Choowong Ki / ชูวงค์ กิ๊In 2001, I found that watercolor may help me. I bought the art book written by Mr. Thaveephong, who is a famous watercolor sketcher in Thailand. I studied the art by myself from this book. I sometimes learn art from Youtube where there are a lot of great teachers awaiting my click to learn from them.

Doodlewash by Choowong Ki / ชูวงค์ กิ๊Even though I am not a professional artist, I usually post art techniques on my blog since 2007. During my self-learning of art from books, I have transferred what I learned to my blog. Many of my followers also learn from what I have posted. I enjoy learning and inspiring others from my blog and community on oknation.net.

I always encourage others who write me an email or comment on my blog asking how to do better drawings. I answer them with the same answer:

Do not worry the output and whether it’s beautiful or not. If you are happy during your drawing, it is great enough. As soon as you’ve done it, your artwork will be the only one in the world made by you.  Your drawing is just the hobby that you do, no need to worry who likes it or not. Just enjoy drawing and keep doing it!

I usually share my artwork on Instagram, however, I also learn from viewing the art of others. I keep sketching and keep improving my line and color on paper. I sometimes add my calligraphy to my artwork in order to make my art look fun or more beautiful.

Doodlewash by Choowong Ki / ชูวงค์ กิ๊Art is fun. You do not need to have a gift from God to do it if you really desire to do it. The gift of art is mastering it by hard work and continuing to draw every day. Art is not only fun, but it is also the healing tool to reduce pressure or sickness.

    Super nice! In the light of the fact that I will likely never get to Thailand (I don’t like to travel and I want to lower my carbon footprint), I am delighted to follow Choowong and visit Thailand virtually!

      Thanks Kari!! ❤️😃I’ve been trying this format as sometimes it’s just better to let the artists have there say and stay out of it! Hehe…might still be a mix, but I’m doing this style when it works. Glad you like it! 😃
