Topics Covered:

  • Sharing a love for Japanese snacks and food culture;
  • Painting wet on dry with himi gouache, and mixing and diluting colors right on the paper instead of premixing on a palette;
  • Painting in intricate details as a meditative and therapeutic outlet;
  • Adding in subsequent layers of paint to mitigate streakiness and building vibrancy of color.
