Festival by Kairi-Moon Festival by Kairi-Moon
You know when you've spent too long on a piece and you kind of want to hang a noose round your neck...well that's how I didn't feel! =P I am please with this, although I did want more of a...painterly feel? I seem to suck at trying to get what I want...

I made this for the JAF as a poster. I will have more at the next one in July (I think).

Photoshop 7

This style of colouring really suits your work. It looks beautiful.

If you want a more painterly feel, try not to be so neat, and use less blending. In fact, try doing a piece without using blending or transparency at all. It's a good experiment to try.I don't think this looks bad or lacking at all, but if you want more painty, try to use confident brushstrokes without fussing over little details.

Heh, thanks. It's so hard though when you see something you just want to clean up soooo badly! =P Like an itch...=P

I shall try that experiment, although I probably won't have any hair by the end of it! =P

Hahaha,Well, it's kind of hard, but remember that it's not necessarily about not being neat, it's more about being economical and confident. Have a look at some oil paintings for inspiration ^_^ Ganbatte!

Oh that's the Japanese Arts Festival that was one...end of February and will be on again in July sometime. It's in London and it's a bit like the expo, but much smaller and more Japanese-y!

And I keep looking back thinking I could have added in more detail!! =P

I was thinking the other day that we hadn't heard from you in a while! (I probably say that every time you upload...)

This looks amazing, I love the style and the colouring is fantastic. My favourite bit would have to be the lanterns. Very nicely done :D

Really?! I do sometimes check here to see how many posts I have to go through, but uploading new work I know I don't do often. Sorry for not saying much! I have lots of work to do, whilst trying to find some sort of job that pays moneys! =P

Simply amazing! I totally agree with the other comments, lovely colours and atmosphere. Even though you might think that you didn't achieve a painterly look, I do think you did! :) You are so much better than me. -
