This week has brought some tragic and shocking news. Odile van der Stap, otherwise known as Jumei, is sadly no longer with us. She passed away last Saturday. I will not share the details of how or why. I believe this is the task of her close loved ones and family, who are still in a process of grieving their loss.

I know that a lot of people appreciated her beautiful art, and that she has a lot of followers here on DeviantArt - people who loved her work but also who talked with her and even made friends with her here. This was how I met her. I was an admirer of her work, and we started talking to each other through notes, and eventually started hanging out and building a friendship. She was very caring, kind and sweet, but also opinionated and unafraid to speak her mind, which I loved about her. She was a tiny girl with a strong and outspoken personality. 

Now that she's gone, we've lost an amazing mind and a talented creator. I hope her amazing work will never be forgotten, and that she will continue to be appreciated for her beautiful vision. Let's never forget her poetic artwork - things she gave us to enjoy, even now that she is gone.

Odile, may you rest in peace Heart

cevennes
some sketches I did during my vacation in the Cévennes last month, based on photo reference! loved being able to sketch and paint digitally while travelling.. the iPad has made that a lot easier than it used to be. 

Drawn with Procreate on the iPad Pro, using the apple pencil. I used a brush set by Ilya Tuljakov for these, find them here - cbr.sh/ai2y9?ref=loish

wanderlust
I drew this one back in 2015 for my artbook, to be used as an exclusive painting :) I re-worked it so many times, changing the color scheme and style completely! I'm happy with the end result, shockingly it looks 'unified' despite having been re-worked so often haha!

flow
Another older piece from 2015. I actually started working on this one in 2012 and re-worked it a gazillion times, because I was saving it for my first artbook! So some of you might recognize it from The Art of Loish (shop.3dtotal.com/books/2d-digi…).

1001 Knights
This is an oldie! Drew it in 2015 for 1001 knights, an anthology showing different interpretations of what it means to be a warrior. A lot of super talented artists contributed! More info here - onethousandandoneknights.com/

After some time in your gallery again and some favs later I just had to fall in line with your admirers. Wow. Amazing colours and moods. I like it very much. I really try and replicate your kind of .. I d call it neon- pastel but I guess it will cost me lots of time to ever come close to that. <3 Have a fine day and always Happy painting !
