Longing by solfieri Longing by solfieri
My REAL birthday gift for :icongizenya:! I just gave the original to her and I'm so glad she liked it! *___*

It's her character Gabriel, from her story Avaris. For those justly wondering what the hell is she doing with a broom in the middle of nowhere... let's pretend she was at her job sweeping and she drifted off to see the pretty nature. :XD:

Doing this rekindled my enthusiasm for watercolours, since I hadn't painted any since last year! I want to do moooaaar now :iconmoarplz: And best thing of all? I didn't need to do ANY retouching in Photoshop! I love my new scanner yey! :boogie:

O MÁGICO DE OZ, LEMBREI! Essa imagem me lembrou o mágico de Oz. Sim, isso me inquietou por meses. Dormiu em paz hoje. XD

Te mandei e-mail também. Responde, salafrária!

In Lilith's watercolors the dominat color was blue, here it's red/pink...:love: Sorry for the repetition, but I really like almost monochrome works :love:
The atmosphere is so lovely and serene....and it's gorgeouse how the soft background doesn't seem just an "addition", but works very well with her figure!! :love:

Thank you! :love: I think one thing I learned in this painting is how backgrounds are actually much easier to paint in watercolours than digitally! :lol: So I really liked how it came out, and I'm glad you did too! :hug:

Obrigada, tia! :glomp: Estou querendo integrar mais os contornos com a luz e a sombra, então estou usando menos linhas e mais tintas bem contrastantes; fico feliz que esteja saindo bem! :heart: E a textura da árvore tb, descobri que é mais fácil fazer texturas como grama, plantas e nuvens em aquarela do que no PS, pelo menos na minha experiência. xD

Agora reservei um tempim pra comentar nas deviations que vc fez pa eu @_@
Eu amei, tipo, um bilhão de vezes tudo da imagem! A paleta, a composição, a pintura (pessoalmente é ainda mais lindo t_t). Transmite perfeitamente a idéia da tranquilidade que é a vida no campo, como ela está carefree varrendo o chão (ou talvez imaginando como seria legal largar tudo e viver a vida na estrada AOHAOAHOAH).
Enfim, muito amor. :heart:

Eu pensei mais nela querendo largar tudo mesmo, ahuhauauhauha!! XDD
Fico feliz que tenha gostado, principalmente do desenho original, é ainda mais gratificante poder dar a versão "intacta" da imagem (porque tu sabe que scanner sempre caga, nem que seja um pouquinho :XD:)

Waaahh thank you so much!!! I always hated drawing/painting trees and grass because I always thought they looked awful and lacked unity, I'm glad they seem to be getting better!! xD
Thank you so much! :glomp:

Beautiful! I especially love the detail in the dress and hair.

Before I read your post I thought it was Dorothy dreaming of getting far away from Kansas.
