Chinese New Year by DawnstarW Chinese New Year by DawnstarW
For: January 2011 show at Blue Moon Gallery

Here is one of the paintings that I'm putting together for a body of work that I'll be showing at Blue Moon Gallery in January. I'm very happy with the end result considering how much detail I had to work with.

Inspired by :icondimensionzero:'s wonderful photo The Lion Awakes [link] , I wanted to have at least one piece in the collection that would be appropriate the new year.

Materials Used:
watercolors
watercolor paper (11x14 inches)
paintbrushes - Round 0, Flat 3/4
mechanical pencil

Progress of 'Chinese New Year' [link]

^.^ YAY! I'm so glad you like the outcome.
Been in a dizzying whirlwind of work as of late because I'm trying to get ready for a show at the gallery I'm with and for some unknown reason nearly all of my work ends up being Asian related so when I saw your photo I couldn't help but think "O! Reference material!" ^^;

I love how the colours themselves aren't too fussy, but the linework holds all the detail. Very nice!

It's amazing what a really tiny paintbrush can do.

amazing colours and patterns going on there :nod:
i really love those blue dots, how they are not all the exact measure of lightness or darkness, beautiful, deatiled work.

Thanks so much. I was trying to get them as close as I could to how they were in the photo I referenced.
