life in city

The National Aboriginal Day/Place des Arts

Together

To work towards a goal or accomplish something together is an incredible feat. Truly we often attempt to take things in our own hands and juggle between tasks in order to get our work done. Yet through a team, there is little that cannot be done. Let us work towards building our team as to do as much as we possibly can in life.

Something I wanted to try with watercolors for some time now - a night scene. Tokyo is a strange place - there are a lot of empty but brightly lit streets at night and the sky is never perfectly black because of the city lights. Especially the clouds get really highlighted by the glare from the city.

Instead of going for the obvious - cool looking, new built high rise offices I just took a photo while doing some late night shopping and used this as a reference for this painting. I wanted to paint some of the lonely night streets.

I like this idea and how the picture turned out so I’m thinking about making a series of this.

Technical stuff:  

  • Medium: HOLBEIN Waterford natural 300g/m cotton paper
  • Sketch: Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil grade HB
  • Line: COPIC Multiliner SP 0.5mm
  • Colours: my main 48 colour Schmincke set

ずっと水彩で試してみたかった夜の風景を描きました。東京は不思議な街で、誰もいない場所でも、いつも明るいです。 街のあかりが空にも反射していて、特に雲は街の光を受けて奇妙な明るさになっています。

そして真新しい高層ビルではなく、深夜にちょっと買い物へ行く時に横切るような雑居ビルを描きたくなりました。 一人で歩くと、すこしこわいかもしれません。;)

出来上がった絵が気に入ったので、これをシリーズにしようかと思っています。
