After Hiroshi Yoshida


I think I have finally finished my first half sheet watercolour. At times it seemed I was trying to cover something the size of a football field. I mentioned this to a local artist friend, saying I have no idea how I would ever handle a full sheet. She said 'Use bigger brushes!'

If anyone would care to suggest improvements they will be gratefully considered. Links to the original Hiroshi Yoshida Japanese print and progress shots of this painting are in my earlier post Mirror, Mirror.

Oh Robyn, it's so beautiful! You did a great job. Brava!!!
I think you've handled the watercolor beautifully and congratulate you on using up that 1/2 sheet of wc!!!

Thank you, Marta - I feel there is something missing with this one. Probably the genius touch of Hiroshi Yoshida!
I suspect I will cut the remaining half sheet in two. I think a quarter sheet is quite enough at present!

I remember that feeling about the paper being huge, and then, when you've done even one painting on a full sheet, the quarter sheet seems so tiny! This is really lovely, Robyn, wonderful job.

Robyn, I know nothing about art. I'm just a simpleton. When I see something appealing, I say it as is. Now, regarding to your suggestion request, my comment may not help you a bit. But, may I say that this is a beautiful painting. My eyes get very happy seeing it :)

Casey - Very belated thank you for commenting on this one. I hope one day to see the real thing.

Luci - Thank you too. I love this image so I'm very happy you responded to it too.
