The Last Day Sketches of 2013

Bye bye 2013. Happy New Year to you, with best wishes!

2014 will be a very productive year, and I can feel all the creative energy saved up inside of me like a volcano ready to erupt :-). The major goals include balance well between work, art, exercise and friends – that’s all – make life simple.

Although the poses were only 10-20 minutes long and the sketches were loose and imperfect, they have some unique qualities of watercolor that other media cannot achieve. The next work I shall use watercolor.

The Gaze (2)

I started this one the day before yesterday. Most of the first day spent on thinking what to paint, and what media to use. By the end of the day I put the sketches in. Usually once I put sketches in I kind of can feel what I want to achieve, but yesterday I worked on it whole day and had stop after a short while, and rest and find the feel that I want to achieve. Today I started right after noon time, and now it reaches a stage that I can set it aside and think of my last touches.

I hope to take a walk now before it gets dark. It’s nice to walk out since I have been at home for three days now for this painting.

Watercolor on Yupo paper

I find it difficult to start if I am thinking “ok, I am going to do a more serious (or controlled) work.
Instead, I noticed this piece of Yupo paper that I tried before once and had this buffalo to the right. So I started to mess it up with paints. Originally I was thinking that Yupo paper may be good for dreams or satires – something surreal. But this particular image is neither a dream nor a satire.

I think Yupo paper is good to learn how to lose control. The listen learned here is that the longer I try the messier it gets.
