Art: Japanese river scene

26 Dec

I tested acrylic gouache. They are similar to regular gouache except that they dry much quicker and once they’re dry they can’t mix anymore. It’s both an advantage and a challenge! An advantage because you can layer other colours without any smearing. A challenge because the error margin is much narrower: if you don’t get it right the first time your mistake has to be worked around.

This is a river scene with two persons using long poles to maneuver a boat each, and passing next to patches of grass where trees like willows are growing. It must be the start of autumn because the trees are bare but there is still grass. A few huts are visible on the horizon. The sky is home for a big orange setting sun, and grey and orange clouds. Framed in black, 10×15 cm (4×6 in.) [and since then sent to my friend Isabelle fir whom I painted it.]

Art: cormorant fishing

8 Dec

Tonight’s artwork, framed in white: Cormorant fishing. Somewhere in China. Near a blossom-laden old tree. There are hills rising from the mist, and a temple sits at the top of a hill, under a big red sun.

Black, grey, pink and red brushpens, water brush, on watercolour Montval Canson paper. 10×15 cm (4×6 in.)

Art: Kamado Tanjiro’s water dragon

23 Nov

I drew this card and did some lettering in white for my son at the occasion of his 14th birthday today. (He loved it)

This is some fan art of Demon Slayer, a manga/anime he’s a fan of. This is Kamado Tanjiro and his water dragon.

Card complete with the envelope

31 Oct
I didn’t spend a lot of time on each drawing and selected only subjects I really wanted to draw.
All done on my small sketchbook Canson art book universal (format 14×21 cm), using a Pentel black brushpen, a Kuretake fudegokochi black pen, a Kuretake light grey Brush Writer in many cases, and in the cases of the last two, that same pen in Geranium Red.

This took me a long time to complete: 5 or 6 hours over two days. And it’s rather small as I drew it on my little Canson artbook (10,2 x 15,2 cm – 4 x 6 in)

Apparently this month is the celebration of Black history so this is timely.
