Face study-1/ 09

A very quick face study in watercolour. I added two new colours--Indigo blue and Sepia to my old Winsor & Newton watercolour set, and could not wait to have a try. Great fun.

A smiling girl

I like this girl's smile very much, so I decided to make a portrait of her. Mixed media on yellow paper. I scanned this when it was still wet, hahaa.. want to keep water marks for ever.

IF: Crunchy vs cat

I am getting more and more interested in cat recently. This doesn't match this week's topic at all ( sorry about it! ). Well, I enjoyed the moments of watching her and painting her. The feeling is kind of like eating crunchy vegetables-- equally wonderful.

To me, watching reflections in water is like listening to music in theatre.

IF: fast

I was inspired by a Chinese film called "" Hero", the fast and beautiful movements amazed me a lot. So I quickly did this while watching the film.

No Sleeping Here

It happened in a very hot summer in Taipei where I was on my holiday there. I went by a bank. Through its big window, I saw a label on the coffee table in its entry hall, on which it said both in Chinese and English, "No Sleeping Here". Apparently there used to be some people sleeping there, of course not on the table but on the sofa which was for its customers waiting for the service. I thought those sleepers were really clever because it was too hot outside on the street, and there were air-conditioners on inside. So why not have a snap there? But obviously the bank didn't want this, so they put a sign on the table to warn those potential sleepers. I felt it was interesting, so took a picture from the outside of the window.

This sketch was based on that photo.

IF: modify

I wish I could modify the size of my mouth, so that I could eat at least four apples at once.

IF: idle

When dogs bite something like a stick or your shoes for no reason, do they feel idle?

IF: Shaky

I hate birds singing in the very early morning, cause usually I went to bed very late. So when I saw this week's topic, this picture just popped into my mind.

Every one has a good weekend!

IF: Drifting

That night,

He climbed up the mountain,

The red moon was rising,

Snow flakes were drifting,

Slowly..., he drifted into a dream.
