Title: Iris Prism
Media:Winsor and Newton Watercolor on a small piece of Canson Montval 300 GSM

Literally this piece was about 3 x4 inches? it was a stress relief painting because I just wanted to get it all out. I ended up with this splash art of rainbow. She looked stunned like caught in the headlghts maybe not ready to face whatever is in front of her. Exactly how I feel right now. in her head a burst of color, all her ideas popping out, but she is forced to stay calm. I slapped on a lot of color and just prayed it will work.

I called her Iris because of the goddess of the rainbow and prism is how you make rainbows right? This was made quick and unplanned and just played with colors and my brush to try to relax. There is a lot of stress in me right now. Painting helps.

I had some time to kill before I commuted off to class last Tuesday. So while my niece was doing ART in my room, i took some of the water she was using and doodled on a board I stretched for another painting. I was just putting colors on the board randomly and it turned out to be this colored portrait of myself. Kinda mangaish because I really wasn’t thinking back then, but in retrospect– WHAT WAS I THINKING ABOUT?

The colors really showed  the muddled and colorful and many thoughts that were inside my head that day. The forms were there too. It was fun quick and satisfying. Relaxing too ! It made me feel good just before I went to class!

This baby is drawn mostly as an experimental thing and for fun. I wanted to draw an overly made up lady and I have this picture of NEEKO (seiyuu and actress) from Japan who is a fashion icon for all things KAWAII (cute).  Harajuku is a place in Japan where fashion enthusiasts gather and show off their quirky fashion stylings in all shades of pastel and bright colors.

I love looking at them (although doubt if I will wear anything like it) and want to draw them. This is a representation of their cute quirky style, their youthfulness and creativity.

Cute, don’tcha think?
