京都の花(宮川町)-31 by Nobuhiro Suhara

I wanted to ink it all first but having colour in the areas I know I wanted it to be will help me plan out the rest of the painting better. #arthasnorules 🎨✨👍🏻 Also! Thank you everyone for your amazing comments, they are so uplifting. You guys make my day everyday. 🍕💕 #art #arte #artsy #artist #artwork #painting #watercolor #watercolour #myart #audraauclair #japan #japanart #japaneseart #geisha #witch #surrealism #surreal #drawing #instaart #instaartist #artoftheday

Happy Sunday, 

I’m currently finishing up the semester with one more final to go (!!), but here are some designs I created for my Advanced Serigraphy class. I was inspired by my upcoming trip to Japan and from reading Memoirs of A Geisha by Arthur Golden. What started as a surface project for me to learn more about the country I will be visiting turned out to be so much more meaningful than I could’ve imagined. It’s about the process, and these are just the outcomes. 

Hope you enjoy them. 

Sketch for an illustration maybe? Jorōgumo -  (Japanese Kanji: 絡新婦, Hiragana: じょろうぐも) is a type of Yōkai, a creature, ghost or goblin of Japanese folklore. According to some stories, a Jorōgumo is a spider that can change its appearance into that of a seductive woman.

Back at it, @saracwilsonart swung by to drop off some beautiful Japanese paper and pick up her prints. She picked the best papers. Since I wanted to keep her more ethereal and to balance out the colours I am opting to keep the robe white but am overlaying a fine floral paper, up close there are so many fine fibres that look like webs as you can see on my fingers. Then I will use the upper left papers as the hems, if I can find a proper spot I may use the upper right paper as well. 🌸🌿✨ Now to pick a good adhesive… #art #arte #artsy #artist #artwork #painting #illustration #instaart #drawing #audraauclair #instaartist #myart #japanart #geisha #watercolor #watercolour #origami #artoftheday
