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

I've heard about you for a long time, seen your artworks before too, one of my old art friends from years back was a fan of yours I think.
I've only just came around to checking out and appreciating your gallery this year.

Your artworks are inspiring and I really hope I can also emulate your dedication and skill in art.

So, I'm going to give you a :+devwatch: now and also say hi!

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 !
