Since I had to paint within the limited time given to me, that is, 30 minutes, I found a way to minimally paint with relatively inexpensive materials in a short time.
So, I came up with a way to do this: one-dollar watercolors, children's paints. The color of the paint was also simple with eight colors: purple, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, brown, and black. It is very affordable and compact, so it is easy to carry. Just because there is no white, we need to add acrylic paint white here. Use HB or 2 H for sketching pencils. The brush is included in the paint. Since we use acrylic paint, we need to add another brush. You will need two pieces of kitchen towel to dry your brushes. All you need is this. Very minimalistic.
I have been raising cute guinea pigs Pinky and Squash since last month. There are several differences between raising two piggies. I will introduce only 5 of them.
1. The whole family got to eat fruits and vegetables well.
Watching the piggies eating carrots is so adorable. Naturally, if I go to the supermarket to give my piggies, I end up buying more carrots and vegetables than I used to. Commonly, families are also exposed to vegetables and fruits. Even my picky child is now good at eating carrots and broccoli.
2. Common conversations between families have increased. The topic of animals and their care is a general and interesting topic. Anyone can easily open their minds to this topic. Rather, I find that conversations with other people, including family members, flow very naturally when it comes to piggy.
3. Through caring for animals, children can learn to be responsible, considerate and love and respect life. This may sound like a textbook cliché, but it's the truth. I often bought my child toys. But children cannot interact with toys. Since the piggies have become part of our family, we've had fewer kids begging for toys. Most of all, the amount of time my child spends watching YouTube or the Internet has significantly decreased.
4. I have become more diligent. In other words, I get up earlier in the morning and go to bed later. I clean their cages twice a day. It can be done by waking up 15 minutes earlier in the morning. Before going to bed, check their condition and clean the surroundings of their bed. It was cumbersome and difficult at first, but the dirty areas are clean and happy to see the piggy popping up there.
I personally feel emotional stability and learn to take responsibility for nature and life. The day is tighter and busier than before, but when I see piggies in a busy time, I feel a certain sense of security. Maybe it's the energy they give. I think that people, animals, and nature were one in the first place. I think we should love nature and animals more and take good care of them.
I drew this picture with the sense of stability and peace that these little animals provide. You can visit the post below for detailed process.

For example, Piggy's whisker is expressed in more detail with white acrylic.
My piggy, Pinky, was named after my daughter, meaning pink ears. Pinky's ears are pink. It would be nice if you didn't miss out on these details.
And it is good to express even the fine details of the hair by adjusting the strength of the hand holding the brush well.
Take 30 minutes of your time to paint a minimalistic picture of your pet using $1 watercolor paints.
