Horse and young woman in kimono under Sakura

9 Jun

I found horse and young woman in kimono under Sakura (bottom of page), another beautiful work by Taiwanese artist Jung Shan:
Although I have some rice paper, I am far from comfortable with it, and the ratio and size wasn’t what I wanted, so I sketched on my 30×30 cm watercolor pad:
I used a Pentel black ink brushpen for the outline and strong parts, and was happy with hoe her faced turned out, compared to the pencil sketch:
I used sepia watercolor and a fine brush for the tree branch and blossoms:
With more sepia, some lamp black watercolor, and a regular brush, I painted the horse and the woman’s skin:
And finally, I used quinacridone rose to paint the blossoms and the woman’s lips, and used what I had left from my sepia wash for the kimono, and the background. The rest of the kimono was painted with lamp black watercolor:
Here is the final version (23×30 cm), framed:
