Seasonal Fuji Fusion by Kezzi-Rose Seasonal Fuji Fusion by Kezzi-Rose
This is a coursework piece painted as part of my Fine Art GCSE, but I'm really not that proud of it. I did a really shoddy paint job and the blue I chose for the wave is all wrong. I wish I could go back and do it again. ;~;

The idea behind this Japanese-themed piece was to show each season through nature, converged into one scene. The volcano is meant to be Fuji, painted in a warm colour to show summer. Cherry blossoms and a butterfly show spring, whereas the violent, stormy wave shows the harshness of winter. The glowing orange sky portrays autumn. No idea where the massive koi came from, they're just fun to draw :')

Watercolour on crappy stretch board that kept wrinkling and going peely.

Note to those who think I'm 'trying to imitate' Hokusai's Great Wave: Clearly this has been inspired by it, but not because I'm a copycat - as part of this course we had to create a piece which clearly included aspects of famous artists' work around our chosen theme. Mine was Japanese art; others chose surrealism, so some of their final pieces included animals with spidery legs (not unlike Dali's). We get marks for this, as long as our piece doesn't turn out as a complete copy of a whole famous work! So don't think I'm trying to 'steal': I wouldn't do that. c: Yes, the wave is in Hokusai's style; but that is deliberate as part of the course requirements.

I like your drawing style-how it's cute and distinctive, but not to the point where it's inappropiate. Probably didn't word that very well. :/

I like the colourfulness of the butterfly, the warmth of the orange sky, the amazingness of the volcano, the gracefulness of the koi, the skillful detail of the waves and the beautifulness of the cherry blossoms! ;D

The Japanese theme is really cool! This belongs in an art gallery - your talent will be share! ^_^
