Today I want to talk about another book I've read recently, called "Paint yourself calm" by Jean Haines.
This book teach us how to not be afraid of watercolors, how to find time for relaxing and painting for relaxing, how to not border ourselves and stop pushing ourselves to running to our goal at least for a half an hour to just breathe. I find this book extremely helpful, especially because last year I was feeling a lot of fatigue and had almost no rest because I was running to my goals like crazy.
It's my second book by her and every time she gave me a lot of energy and inspiration to just take a piece of paper, paint, brush and relax by enjoying watercolors.
Джин Хэйнс "Акварель без правил"
Книга, которая учит не бояться акварели. Книга, которая учит находить время на отдых, расслабление и живопись, которая не ставит перед тобой какие то рамки или задачи. Учит наслаждаться простыми вещами, умиротворением, и с помощью этого преодолевать преграды на пути. Получила огромное наслаждение от чтения этой книги и даже захотелось повторить упражнения, которые она предлагает, хотя чаще всего подобные вещи я в книгах пропускаю.
Это уже вторая прочитанная мной книга этого автора и каждый раз она меня погружает в какое то волшебство и дает огромный заряд энергии на творчество. И как она только это делает? Спасибо @miftvorchestvo за возможность прочитать ее и получить этот необходимый глоток воздуха💙

So, since I'm finally home it's time to try the stuff I've got before leaving and make a review for you!😀 These watercolor brushpens I've got from @kickart_store and I have to say that I love it! There's some things that are not in my personal taste or could be improved but still - they are really cool! Let’s start with a good stuff. First of all, I love the colors! When you buy a set you may expect the color be very simple, like, just red, just blue, just brown, just pink. But these shades of colors are pretty unique and beautiful, skin color, candy pink, the black is more like Payne's gray (the color I love and use a lot as you can see), oh god, they even have a perfect turquoise color (and if you know me - you know how important this is for me)💙 So yeah, the colors are amazing. Also the fact that it's watercolor and you can make the bright and very pigmented colors to fade (just put the tip in water and it will be lighter from the start! and will blend better! and don't worry, it will return to the pigmented color soon) or mix. I don't like alcohol markers but watercolor ones are my big YES. Basically I think watercolor markers are perfect for people who want to watercolor, but too afraid of paint that perform as it wants (what I still love in watercolors, that's why I'm using it) and who want to have a full control over the colors .
And a few words about not that good thing. Actually, it's just nib. It's like a real brush nib with nylon hair but I prefer nibs that are solid, like felt. Just because the tip is always on point and hair doesn't fall off. That's all, and it's just my preference, so you may like brush tip more.
Anyway, I loved these brushpens and if you're thinking about getting ones - I recommend you to try these.
Also I have no idea is it girl or boy, so please don't ask😅 it doesn't matter. It's like genderless fashion that attracts me lately so much😍
