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.)

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.

Conclusion

I loved it! I discovered in the process that I don’t really like coloured pencils, but that I absolutely love gouache painting!

I think I have improved over the years. Notably, for “sullen” I redid a drawing of “Woman Sitting on Edge of Veranda” by Utamaro Kitagawa. Four years apart, and this time the lines were crisper and there was simply more details.
