Chinese inspired watercolor painting

While I'm better known on dA for my photos, I've actually started to paint and draw traditionally one year ago, mainly inspired by my travels to Japan and Hong Kong. You can find a lot more on my website
I was inspired for this one by the red lanterns shops in Hong Kong, although the background looks more like Beijing 😅 I'm quite please how this picture turned out.

So happy to see more of your work! I miss your short films, but not sure if the new dA is still hosting them. I saved your "simplemoment" site to my bookmarked favorites so I can go back and look at my favorite short films as many times as I can until you scrap them or something. :P

Anyway, this piece is awesome! Would love to see more.

(By the way, I'm not sure if I changed my username before you took a bit of a hiatus; I used to be ImagineAppleScruffs)

Hope everything is well on the Corona Front and that you're keeping well yourself.

Hey! Good to read from you! :happybounce: I'm great and I hope everything's fine on your side too!

I'm happy that you still find inspiration in my short films: I don't plan to do more but they'll stay online for sure! And so happy you visit simplemoment too! If you wanna see more paintings, head to the "Sketchbook" section there :D I'm not sure if I'll upload more here but we'll see.

Looks like dA is getting a "social network" look this day with lots of similar features available elsewhere. Not sure I'm much interested in them, though!

Take care and enjoy your day!

Thank you for asking me! "Dreams of April 9th" While the source had some interesting individual dreams, I couldn't produce a coherent work out of them: I would had needed more material, like with my other collaborative projects ,to get more diversity and inspiration. I remembered than when reading them, I couldn't think of photos I could produce out of these. However, now that you're asking me, I'm curious to read them again: I sometimes draw single-page comics that are not strictly narrative and maybe I could find inspiration on them. Who knows? Thanks for your interest and for stimulating my curiosity again. I how hope you're great and creative ! Take care !
