I’ve now started working on my Petals in the rain watercolour. I’ve only got the first layer of colour down but so far I’m happy with the design and colour choice.
I designed that kimono myself based on real kimonos both classic and modern. I wanted to use the outer garment to pull together the sky and the water so I decided to make a vibrant blue kimono with a cloud and bird design at the top in the blue sky and a lily design in the blue water skirt. I wasn’t sure if it would work or if it would be too simplistic but so far I’m happy.
At the moment the red undergarment and the black hair and eyeliner so look a bit out of place but as I add more colour to the rest of the painting these should look more in place.
