Meditation by theOlven Meditation by theOlven
Possibly the most complex thing I've painted in the last year. <3
Tried to captured the colors of the dawn, I really love the mountains in the background. I've been recently trying to paint convincing background with real lighting and am happy about the progress!
Again, I have some weird problems scanning watercolors, even the smooth paper has the structure visible when I scan it. >.<

Watercolors. Nothing else.

what has she realized?

that all is one, or that the sun has simply come up?

that question, and the atmosphere you have created is why this is one of my favorite works of art. thank you.

Thank you! Well, who would meditate with closed eyes when you can watch the sunrise? :)

Only watercolors?  :o

Nice work!

The rocks look like rocks, the character looks like a living character, fur looks like fur, and the lighting is done pretty well.

I really enjoy seeing well done artwork such as this on the DD gallery.

Cheers

Yes, only watercolors and lost of hours of work, nothing else. :)
Still I'm not really satisfied about the lighting, I think the shadows should be darker, the light in the morning is typically very intense.
Thank you! :hug:

you did this with watercolors? That's amazing! I can't paint with watercolors to save my life and I have a high respect for talented artists who can work with them... congratulations on the DD and keep up the good work!

Yes I did. :) It's not easy to paint with them as they're probably the least mistake forgiving medium there is. But once you get over the beginnings, they become wonderful and unpredictable at the same time. :)
Thanks a lot! :heart:

I really admire this piece. You truly did do a great job of catching the dawn colors. I love that you did it the hard way by portraying the warm colors directionally on the character and scenery, using cool colors elsewhere. The contrast is gorgeous and it keeps the color scheme from being too one-sided like it may have been if you'd coated the whole piece in warm color like some people do for sunrise scenes. :) Very clever color usage. The character's meditative pose and wide-eyed expression are awesome, and I also really admire the textures of the stone. The distant mountains are extremely well done, too.

You are amazing. :+fav:
