Been so busy with various things I haven’t had time to draw but there’s 3 different work in progress pictures at the same time orz. Here’s another one, hopefully I’ll be able to finish this and the others soon.
Unfortunately, while the cherries were in bloom in Tokyo either I was busy, or it was raining so I could not paint outside. I took some photos of the sakura near my house to paint later and this is the result.
This painting was done on a watercolour paper sample we got while shopping in Sekaido art supplies store in Shinjuku. I wanted to try something a little bit different than usual: I first did a pencil sketch, then painted the picture using my Schmincke watercolours. When I was done with the colours the pencil lines where almost invisible so to add details and depth I used some white opaque paint and Conté pencil charcoal
PS. I was pleased with the quality of the CANSON paper. It matched my style of painting quite well and put up with the masking tape, paints, pencil and charcoal very well.
Medium: CANSON Heritage 300g/m cold pressed cotton paper
Happy Earth Month Everybody! This is a different take on Mother Earth, done for Design Action For Science in organization with the March For Science taking place nationwide tomorrow.
I try not to get political on this page but with recent detrimental changes to the administration, I think it’s important to continue a dialogue about environmental protection. I’m sure many of you will agree that we cannot be silent as forces work to march us backward in time, and away from a better future for everyone.
Fight for Science. Fight For Progress. Fight for a clean and safe Earth for all creatures.
