First pic of 2006. by koony First pic of 2006. by koony
Draw/paint date: 20060101

That's me today, spending a quiet first day of new year alone; trying to think of new year's resolutions but couldn't quite reach there.. still thinking.

Btw the color/effect wasn't intended to be like this originally.
What happenned was I accidentally spilled the entire bottle of the orange/yellow ink onto my desk.
To salvage those espensive ink, I used a huge brush to wipe the desk and applied straight to this picture, hence the effect lol.

Anyway, Happy 2006 to all.

Hope it brings good health, good wealth, good fortunes, peace, and happiness :)

Heh. I still love the colour, as always. It has such a nice, peaceful and content feeling to it, and that's why I love your art.

Ah! It's wonderful! I've always loved your watercolors and their vibrancy!

I've been neglecting DA for ages and never completing anything I draw (completing = coloring and stuff) so not many updates from me. I hope you're doing okei... :hug:

I really like your style of drawing. I don't know how else to say it. Also, the yellowy orangeness is awesome. I hope the desk wasn't damaged from the color spill.

I haven't been able to think of any new years resolutions either! XD maybe that's just a sign that we're pretty content with our lives not to have anything pop up right away? or maybe not. XD And I'm sorry about your inks! The effect turned out great anyway. :D Let's make 2006 a good one, shall we? :glomp:

Great way to start the new year, eh? Spilling ink..... if it were me, I'd be jumping up and down "cursed! I'm cursed for this year!" or something to that effect. Then I'd vow not to touch ink for the rest of the year. Just stand in a corner, glaring at the spill *evil spill, you*.

Lol! Oh, trust me, I was going "lkdjflakjl #$%!!", and then had to quickly think positive and convert the sorry situation into something more desirable..... still, those ink were expensive! BUT I MUST DEFEAT THE BAD LUCK!! XD
Anyway, Have a Happy 2006!

.. yeah, it does have that kinda feel.. a bit sad lol. Don't have the urge to join the crowds yet being alone can be a bit sad esp during newyear eve/ newyear day. Oh well, hope you have a Happy 2006 :)

lol, I admit it's quite fun to convert the "mistakes" into something desirable in pictures. (still, that ink was expensive!)
