Being as an artist, isn't it a great joy and honour to hear others comment, "Ah, I soon get that's your work! That's your style"?
Colour use, a background and a texture have been my main concerns for these months. In this post, red or pink are dominant colours. Friends, how do you "feel" or get an idea for a background? I'm an inspiration orientated artist. Until something I feel, I do not make it into a watercolour painting.
Below, the lady's red caught my eyes at the market. (*She was the busy manager of a Sunday market! A4)
But when I sketched the lady, she was having a coffee break with a cigarette. Sunshine, something warm and relaxing mood -- was my images for the picture. Soft and light green came cross my mind for a background. Then, I organized a background like above. Hum, it was fun! I should try a background more!! Be brave!
Another study was based on my old work. In this doodle, I tried to make a strong contrast and a rough texture. I've just realized... the same pattern of my colour use. *You may say, "Hey, Sadami, you like a "red and green combination"?" Could be.
I'd really appreciate your any feedback. (A4)
Apart from a heavy topic and technical stuff,
above all, joy must come first for me. Tadadada~~! It's me in a studio. (Some competitions require a bio and photos. So, I took some photos last week.)
I want to establish my own style, while exploring something new all the time. Exploring watercolour is sometimes not easy. Experiments' outcomes disappoint me. It discourages me. But I always learn a lesson and move on. Life is short. I cannot get stuck too long. Because always I remember the joy, it encourages me again.
Quite simple -- I love watercolour, thus, I keep up and work on my style.
I'm sure among you, Friends, sometimes get suck and make a sigh. Don't worry. You're not alone. Sometimes, we have rainy days. But sure, you'll enjoy sunshine. This Super girl sends you all the best, joy and energy. I hope you will reach your own goal!
Friends, Happy Painting!!
*Oh, yes, our Monday evening life drawing class will move into a bigger and nice space tonight. Hurray!
