Enjoy learning a little about Ohn Mar Win!
1. Do you work in any other mediums other than water-colour?
Yes I work in pen and ink, brush pen, and I use PS and Ai on a IMac
2. How do you choose and organize your subject matter?
More my sketch a day I tend to just pick a subject on that day - perhaps I saw a flower or a palette of colours I liked so wanted to explore them further. I don’t really have a plan most days!
3. Where is your favorite place to do creative research? Online? In person?
I do both. Sometimes I’ll take a photograph of something whilst on a walk or shopping and bring it out when needed.
4. Do you have a favorite piece of art or one that you are more proud of?
Oh gosh I really like a lot of my foodie illustrations but I like some of the sketches where I mix up the mediums
5. Who or what inspires you creatively?
Mostly everyday things or seasonal flowers can be turned into lovely patterns. And I like seeing the art at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition
1. What was your favorite toy or item as a child?
I did have a small tin paint set which I treasured and lots of Roald Dahl books
2. What is your favorite movie?
Either Breakfast at Tiffany's or Bladerunner
3. What is your favorite food to eat?
I could eat Sushi everyday
4. Do you have other creative outlets?
I really like watching films and would love to write a screenplay one day
5. Do you have any personal advice for other artists that may be new or unsure about sharing their creative talents?
I’d say just make lots of art, don’t be afraid of making a mistake or a mess as we are all learning. That's why I paint everyday - I’m still learning and developing myself. Soon you’ll se what you are attracted to and then make more art with that in mind
