I'm loosening up landscape. My short term goal is to make playful work like my figures. The ultimate goal is to enrich illustration skills and establish my distinguished style. "Break Out. Do Something Different," is a mantra.
Here's my first try. *You know I hate architecture & landscape. BUT I really enjoyed this try. Wow!
Let me know your feedback.
These days, we have had lots of rain. I made it from the impression of "after rain." "Soft edges" are not bad. I want to make lots more like this one. Mmm...! This could be my real breakthrough of landscape. Loose landscape matches my taste!
Timing and amount of water are critical to make washes. Oh, one more, paper. Papers must bear heavy torturing. Good qualified papers are essential. (*I use Arche 300, smooth.) An illustrator friend shows me a "board." I'm thinking of it...
This is my view. Given info = something taught is a half-valued treasure untill an individual tries it and learns it. Above all, anyone soon forgets such passive info. Take initiative and examine the fact. Then, it becomes my flesh and bones. And a theory is a theory. There isn't an almighty or a perfect theory. It always has limitations and exceptions. So, a logic cannot make me a person in prison.
Regarding watercolour, I'm a person of instinct. "Free, lively and flexible" is my strength. Then, always I want to challenge myself.
Now, I apply new techniques to work!
Here's my joke applied a "wrap tech" to create the marble's image. Don't ask me how this marble cutter works. Fun orientation is my style. World needs laughter~!
The wrap tech can produce images like ice, broken glasses, marble, etc, etc. In illustration, I'd use it to provoke emotions. What else? It's totally up to an individual how to use it. Fun!
Of course, I enjoy sketching as usual, whilst a wash tech. This puppy was so cute at a shop. Ah, indulgence! Daily sketches are my inspirations and important "preliminary research" for studio work.
Watercolour is becoming thrilling and so much fun. My "visual diary" gets rich day by day. I feel the unlimited potential in watercolour techniques.
In addition, Friends, we don't need to make masterpieces all the time. The point is how and what we learn in our own ways.
Finally, the life drawing class starts today.
The organizer asks me to bring a plastic sheet, who claims to make tons of "messes."
Friends, Happy Painting!
(NOTE: Not wise to sketch outside on a rainy day. A paper did not get dry. A drawn rat on a street.
