Last year this time I would be going to the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in SF, but that and everything else has been canceled due to the pandemic. I've been missing all the street food and flowers, so I dug up some old photos from Japan and painted over it. It helps during that bad times to remember the good times.
I thought you deserved a well-written comment on Sakura Festival. I love the fact that the trees up above, the purple trees are falling towards the middle of the painting. This creates a live movement within the environment of the artwork. In Sakura Festival by yuumei on DeviantArt, if you look in the middle of the purple trees, at the little blue part of the sky. that is just enough blue sky to create a wonderful transition over to the purple trees. It feel like a real colorful environment to me! And let me tell you yuumei, I love when artists use the colors purple and orange together in a painting! The contrast between purple and orange in any shade make great paintings and great paints to put together on a canvas. In Sakura Festival you have just enough orange to brighten the painting. The buildings look lively because of the overall setting. Also, I have to mention, I love the cat in this painting. Even though the cat takes up such a small portion of the painting, I believe the cat made the whole painting. It is amazing how sometimes the smallest details or the smallest parts of a piece of artwork can make the whole painting. These are my opinions and thoughts on this masterpiece, Sakura Festival by yuumei on DeviantArt.
Aw, I hope it's nothing too bad on your wrist :/ Hopefully the pandemic will die down soon!
You really nailed this painting though, I've never had the occasion to go to Japan for the festival or for anything really but it feels good to see some wonderful art of it from you !
