have been sick the past week so forgive my absence. But in my absence, I was very productive with studying watercolors. This painting, Kingyo (Goldfish) was long coming. It was a concept from way before which I didn’t know if I had the skills or the guts to do.
The concept is a Matsuri/ Japanese festival where the girl won a goldfish. And I had some idea of goldfish swimming around her playfully as she recalls the memory of how she won her trinket. I wanted to do playful primaries. I did this on Arches Hotpress and I loved the experience
I want to redo the concept to make the kimono prettier and the goldfish brighter. I also can’t decide on which scan to use since the scanner kills my colors.
