Something new this time: Watercolours!
...Or rather, watercolour pencils. I've wanted to try watercolours for a while now and I thought it might be an easier transition to go through watercolour pencils, but they lack a certain casual and soft feeling that pure watercolours tend to have. An interesting experiment nonetheless!
Now that that's out of the way, Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust are AMAZING in the new netflix rom-drama, inaptly titled 'LOVE'. It takes a bit of getting used to the setting and premise of two early-30-somethings fresh out of relationships living in a hipster-LA bubble. Binging this series whilst hungover was a great decision. I would have drawn Gillian Jacobs (and I did, in fact) but her facial unique-ness lies within the subtle shading of her cheekbones. Amazing actress - and much better than her one-dimensional 'Britta' character on Community. Once again - she proves that she's able to bring back her season 1 days and that she's still got 'it'. And as for Paul Rust - what a surprise. Loved the on-screen awkwardness, and endearing chemistry born out of that awkwardness. Loved how real it was sometimes - they really dig deep into the core of who they are as characters and the entire thing doesn't seem contrived. It feels very real. And we've all felt it - dysfunctional, messed up, life off-track, lame, stupid, embarrassed, brave, intimate - scared.
I think I need to watch some of those episodes again.
Til the next update.
